Introducing NITECORE HC65 UHE Ultra High Triple Output Metal Headlamp


This headlamp has been thoroughly upgraded in every aspect, from its LED, optical lenses, and battery technology to the design of its appearance. The HC65 UHE marks new achievements in terms of brightness, runtime, and beam distance, offering an enhanced user experience through its excellent performance.

The HC65 UHE features the debut of the ultra high efficiency UHE LED, marking a new series of LEDs introduced by NiteLab subsequent to the UHi line. UHE, short for Ultra High Efficiency, represents NiteLab's pioneering development in LEDs that boasts ultra high efficiency, specifically designed for high-performance gear such as headlamps. It ensures enhanced efficiency per watt, offering a brighter, more energy-efficient, and long-lasting experience.

The HC65 UHE features an 8-core UHE LED and an 8-core UHE matrix optical system, with its 8-core architecture optimizing both performance and energy consumption. Its advanced matrix optics achieve over 94% light transmission efficiency and a reflective surface of 509 mm², greatly minimizing light loss in projection and improving reflection efficiency, thereby effectively increasing the beam distance. Offering a peak output of 2,000 lumens and a beam distance of 222 meters, it fulfills the demanding performance requiring for headlamps in diverse environments.

Different from the single-core point light source in the HC65 V2, the HC65 UHE features a 42mm wide surface light source, about 2.5 times wider than its predecessor. This width, closer to the human eye's interpupillary distance, enhances the perception of illuminated objects, making them appear more three-dimensional and natural with clearer and more transparent outlines, thus improving safety in outdoor environments.

A first in the industry, this professional headlamp comes standard with a high performance 4,000mAh 18650 Li-ion battery (NL1840HP), providing about 17.6% more capacity than typical 3400mAh Li-ion batteries. On 400 lumens (HIGH), it can last up to 14 hours, meeting the needs of all-night lighting.

The headlamp's tough outdoor aesthetics are crafted entirely from metal. Its sturdy structure and finely beveled edges evoke the ruggedness of off-road vehicles. Beyond its exterior, the HC65 UHE boasts IP68 dust and water resistance, internal waterproofing for interfaces (allowing waterproof charging), anti-collision protective cover, and a 2-meter drop-proof design, robustly equipped to resist dust, water, and unexpected drops in outdoor settings.
