Nitecore

NU05

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

Nitecore calls this tiny light a “head­lamp mate” due to its abil­ity to be used in tan­dem with a full-size head­lamp, ei­ther clipped to the back of the head strap or worn else­where on the body. As a re­sult, the NU05 is tai­lored to iden­ti­fi­ca­tion pur­poses. It fea­tures a to­tal of five LEDs — two white, two red, and one lowout­put red indi­ca­tor light — each of which in­cludes a flash­ing mode. The NU05 also fea­tures one 35-lu­men constant-on set­ting that can be paired with an op­tional head strap and bike mount bracket kit to pro­vide emer­gency il­lu­mi­na­tion. The built-in battery will last just one hour when used this way but can be quickly recharged via a mi­cro-USB port. We noted that this light is the per­fect size to clip onto a sin­gle loop of PALS web­bing, mak­ing it a valu­able ac­ces­sory for night­time hik­ing or back­pack­ing.

Pros:

Tiny size and light weight make it an ideal backup for emer­gency use For an ex­tra $5, the head band and bike mount kit add ver­sa­til­ity.

IP66 wa­ter­proof

Cons:

Short battery life when used in constant-on mode Lacks constant-on mode for red LEDs
