The Nitecore HC33 is the latest right angle head torch in the range with an outstanding 1800 lumens output from the Cree XHP35 HD LED, making this the brightest single 18650 head lamp we currently sell.
Please note: The HC33 can be powered by an 18650 battery, however it MUST have an output of 8A or higher.
Featuring a wide 100 degree angle beam pattern, the HC33 makes an ideal light for close range hands free tasks, but is just as capable at long range thanks to the 187 meter throw.
The headband can be worn on over a helmet and the light can be angled up and down easily inside the mounting bracket. The HC33 can also be used without the headband as a torch and features a magnetic tail cap for hands free use while working on vehicles etc. A pocket clip is also included for attachment to clothing and belts etc.
Powered by a single 18650 Li-ion battery (minimum 8A output) or two single use CR123A cells. Battery voltage is displayed via a number of flashes from the LED each time a battery is inserted, accurate to 0.1V. For example a fully charged 18650 will blink 4 times then a 1.5 second pause and 2 more blinks to indicate a voltage of 4.2V.
Operated by a single switch, simply press and hold to turn on / off and once on tap to cycle through the brightness levels. Instant access to ultra low from off by a quick tap and long press (1.5 seconds) for instant access to turbo.
Five brightness levels plus strobe mode - runtimes when using 18650:
- Turbo: 1800 lumens - 30 minute runtime
- High: 780 lumens - 1 hour 45 minute runtime
- Mid: 240 lumens - 5 hour 45 minute runtime
- Low: 70 lumens - 16 hour 30 minute runtime
- Ultralow: 1 lumen - 330 hour runtime
Other notable features include Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR), which regulates output according to operating temperature, reverse polarity protection and waterproof to IP68 (2 meter submersible).
