The NU20 is one of Nitecore's newer headlamps and comes in two LED variants, one normal CREE and one high CRI Nichia. These have black bodies as default, though the CREE XP-G2 S3 LED is able to be placed in different colored finishes. With a li-ion battery inside, the NU20 can run for years. As long as you do, even.

The NU20 is machined out of durable polycarbonate, with the back it rests and tilts on able to swivel up and down. It is hard-anodized with six colored finishes, all having the same type of comfortable headband though the color of it depends on the NU20 it comes with. This headlamp is also rated to IPX7 standard, meaning it can go underwater to 1 meter for half an hour but any deeper or longer risks damage.
