Nitecore's HC30 will make sure you are never left in the dark, whether that's hiking or taking a run. With a 1000 lumen output, this headlamp provides brilliant illumination that will ensure you always have a clear view of what is in front of you. Able to run on either one 18650 battery or two CR123A batteries, the HC30 has a maximum throw distance of 162 meters with a wide 100° beam for maximum coverage, making anything in your path clearly visible.

The interface of the HC30 is simple. Each setting is accessible through the single button over the LED, easily operable with one hand. Made from aerospace grade aluminum alloy, Nitecore's HC30 is as durable as it is functional, able to withstand impacts from as high as 1.5 meters. Even the lens is designed to withstand wear and tear, constructed from ultra tough mineral glass. The HC30 has a rating of IPX8, able to be submerged to -2 meters of water indefinitely. This means you can take it while diving into a lake and the light won't go out as soon as it hits the water.

On Reddit, a review for the HC30 has gone up. It is well written, leads to a new discount code, and is a good way to spend ten minutes. We look forward to your thoughts on the review, and the HC30 itself.
