The shortest day of the year was just this week, but it’s still going to be a while before days get noticeably longer. For those who are going to make an effort to get out there all the same, the newly released Nitecore NU30 headlamp may be worth your attention.
Don’t let the small size of this thing deceive you. The main light on the headlamp, a CREE XP-G2, boasts 400 lumens at a range of up to 130 yards, while the auxiliary lights, a red LED with 19 lumens and a 35 lumen LED white lights are perfect for illuminating objects at closer ranges. The lithium ion batter packed into this light can run for 330 hours on a full charge when the light is operating in economy mode (the light has four different modes), and can be re-charged via microUSB connection. As if all of that wasn’t enough, this 3 ounce headlamp is waterproof rated at IP67 and designed to withstand drops of up to 5 feet. Fighting off the night just got a whole lot simpler. Prices are set at $40. [Purchase]
