Bright, Efficient LED Lighting

The Nitecore NU 32 headlamp uses an efficient CREE LED to provide hands-free lighting at a maximum 550 lumens. A maximum 125m beam distance highlights a significant amount of the landscape around you. You can easily adjust the headlamp’s angle and cycle through four different brightness levels to suit your needs, making the NU32 an excellent outdoor companion.

Red Auxiliary Light and Special Modes

Two special modes, SOS and Location Beacon, are great features for emergency situations, or if you become separated from your photo group. The red auxiliary LEDs help preserve your night vision while still highlighting a small area around you, perfect for checking camera settings in the dark. This is an ideal feature for astrophotographers and nightscape shooters.

Adjustable Headband

The soft, elastic headband is adjustable, providing a custom fit for comfortable long term use. The added benefit of wearing your torch is that it leaves your hands free to operate your camera, telescope, or tripod, while still giving you perfectly angled lighting. 

Built-In Rechargeable Battery

A convenient built-in micro USB rechargeable battery can provide several hours of use, depending on the brightness level or lighting mode selected. All of the light’s functions can be used even during a charging cycle, so you can still illuminate your workspace while powering up.

Durable and Water Resistant Design

The Nitecore NU-32 Headlamp is made from tough polycarbonate which ensures it’s both durable and lightweight, able to withstand impacts from up to 1m. It’s also water and dust resistant, with an IP67 rating, so you can confidently use it in a wide range of conditions.
