Nitecore HC33 XHP-35 1800 lumen Headlamp

Hey lads as you all know i love to drone on about headlamps so check out this new bad boy. Now i wish i had one to review or to just use when i am fishing lol.

Looks interesting but its priced fairly high even higher then the Concept 1 when it was first released. Presales are coming in at a rectum hurting 158 SGD Singaporean dollars? Which is about 116 USD.

It look like a beefed up version of the HC30 my beloved light ah such nostalgia.

Appears to be the same driver as the Concept 1. The modes and output are very similiar.

Hey Chris how are you man? Yeah price… pfff… I always loved the Acebeam headlight with MT-G2 emitter, especially in sand/tan colour. That thing is also $100+. For that kind of money I’m not going to enjoy the light, it’s simple as that. But then again, for 70 bucks I got myself a MF01, muahahahahaa!! 10000 Nichia lumens oh yeah. Big SmileBeer

Hey mate i am good thanks. You? Yea the MF01 is a bargain at that price cant beat it.

Yea this is pre-sale price i think it will be around the Concept 1 price once in stock at our usual sellers. The Concept 1 was under 100 USD when released i think maybe even 80 USD with the coupon? I think i paid around 40USD for my HC30 and i got mine the day it was released well i bought it the same day took a few weeks to get here lol.

If we can score for a good price it looks okay. I would of liked to see a proper 1000 lumen high mode like the HC30 seeing as turbo will step down quick it only weight 51 grams. Actually looking at the candela the reflector will be smaller then the Concept 1.

They apparently include a Nitecore cell in the pack.

I’m fine thanks! The odd thing is that the concept 1 is priced much more attractively at $65, just like the P30 (Banggood). With discount it’s about $50 or so. So for a Nitecore it’s a good deal. So I’m not sure how cheap this headlight will be… Nitecore’s pricing is really odd.
