The Nitecore NU43 Rechargeable LED Headlamp emits a powerful 1400-lumen beam, but is light enough for long-wearing comfort. Equipped with an upgraded unibody optical lens system, the lamp combines a spotlight to see in the distance, and a floodlight for close-up tasks and reading. Alternatively, switch to the auxiliary red light to protect your night vision or use as a long-lasting signal light.
The NU43 is equipped with a built-in 3400mAh battery for extended runtimes up to 165 hours on low, and over 10 hours on high. The best news is that it can fully charge in under 2 hours via its hidden USB-C port. A four-LED battery indicator makes clear how much power you have. The highly efficient current circuit provides up to a full year of standby power, making it a great candidate for emergency kits.
Sharing the stage with the NU43 is a well-thought-out headband design. It is wider and more breathable than typical headlamp bands and more comfortable to wear. Reflective markings make you highly visible near traffic.
The LED assembly is protected by an aluminum frame, for impact resistance of 6.6', and the whole headlamp is rated IP68 waterproof.
Built into the head of the LED array is a proximity sensor that automatically dims the light when approaching barriers, reducing harsh glare and reflection, and preventing overheating.
Unlike headlamps that tilt forward from a hinge along the bottom of the lamp, the NU43 pivots on an axis right through its center, putting less pressure on your forehead.
