Nitecore 2700 lumen headlamp

The HC35 model from Nitecore uses 4 x Cree XP-G3 S3 LED bulbs powered by a rechargeable 4000 mAh 21700 battery that gives the headlamp a maximum output of 2700 super bright lumens. This is a floodlight with a throw distance of 134 meters / 111 foot that illuminates the whole area around you, instead of just a focused beam far ahead. The battery system is quite versatile as well, it can run on a rechargeable 18650 or two disposable CR123A batteries as well, but the performance won’t be as good as with the 21700 battery. But if you already own a bunch of 18650 or CR123A batteries you can use them as backup batteries in case you run out of juice on long hikes. The light can also be removed from the strap, turning it into a small everyday carry flashlight. 5 different brightness settings to toggle between, plus 2 special modes.

This is a great choice if you are looking for a bright headlamp that runs on rechargeable batteries and doesn’t cost too much. The ability to use 18650 batteries with the included converter is also a nice touch, as you probably have some already if you own other flashlights. The box contains everything you need, batteries and charging cable included. Recharging the flashlight is done by USB cable, plugged straight into the lamp.
