The Nitecore NU32 is a high performance rechargeable head torch with multiple outputs. The main beam is provided by a Cree XP-G3 S3 LED with a maximum brightness of 550 lumens and a range of up to 125 meters. In addition to the main LED there are two auxiliary Red LEDs and two High CRI LEDs. The red outputs effectively protect night adapted vision and can also be used for wildlife observation and night photography. The high CRI LEDs provide accurate colour rendering capabilities, which resemble daylight and reduce eye strain.
Featuring a built in high capacity Li-ion battery rated at 6.66Wh, which is equivalent to 9 x AAA batteries yet with a weight of only 99.5 grams including the headband. Charging is easy with the supplied micro-usb lead, which plugs into the charging port on the side of the NU32.
Four brightness levels, three light sources and two special modes means there's an output for every occasion:
Turbo White Light: 550 lumens - 1 hour runtime
High White Light: 190 lumens - 17 hours runtime
Medium White Light: 33 lumens - 50 hours runtime
Low White Light: 1 lumen - 330 hours runtime
High CRI LED: 19 lumens - 25 hours runtime
Red LED: 9 lumens - 38 hours runtime
Red Flash: 9 lumens - 45 hours runtime
Plus SOS and Beacon Flashing Modes
The main lighting unit incorporates a tiltable bracket, which can be angled downwards when required.
The NU32 can also be used as an emergency light source and will operate while connected to a USB power source such as a power bank.
A built in power indicator reports the remaining battery power via a sequence of red flashes from the light inside the switches.

For the same price as a petzl actik you get a torch with a much wider range of lumens. Haven’t tested the run times as yet but need to get a battery bank anyway so hopefully I won’t run out of power as there’s no option to put some emergency batteries in. However the compromise is waterproofness just make sure that you’re little rubber thingy is fully in place or water may get in to your slot for you lead to plug into. That’s the only real weak point. Great range of usable light, locking facility to prevent accidental turn on, waterproof, rechargeable but the best thing? The customer service from flashaholics

This is a brilliant head torch, the light is very bright and shows quite a big area just what I needed when working at night.
