Great Value, Great Products
Bought the Nitecore combo in Neutral White during a Nitecore sale, and very glad I did. I had no charger previously, and this is my first 18650 cell powered light, so buying a combo was a good way to start. The HC30 - Great light with powerful output and throw: Turbo gives 1000 Lumens and 162m throw. Modes specified are 1, 70, 210, 400, and 1000 Lumens. User Interface provides for access to the 1 Lumen level (a good level for night time walks or in a tent) directly with a simple short click, or to the last level at which the light was turned off and so memorized by a long press and release. Each click once on cycles through the sequence from lower to higher levels to Turbo and back around again. If you use the short click to go directly to the 1 Lumen level, you have to remind yourself that a LONG press is necessary to turn off the light (a short press will ruin your night vision). Run times reflect the good capacity and capability of the 18650 cell used. The head of the light has deeply cut heat sink fins to help dissipate heat. The HC30 comes with a snap-on pocket clip, but without a magnetic tail cap insert or a provision for a split ring or lanyard. The headband for the HC30 is versatile and well made; it's one with an over the top of the head strap for added security and holding power. The light hold is silicone rubber, and the retaining collar is a wide band of silicone rubber that the light fits into with reasonable ease and that gives good holding power to prevent the light from slipping that would change the beam direction. i2 Charger - 2 cell charger designed to charge a wide variety of cell types and sizes. While the specifications say especially designed for IMR cells, and lists 14500 cells in its specs, I have had the i2 flash its lights at me when I've attempted to charge several brands of ICR 14500's and an IMR 16340 "out of their box" . By the time I experienced this I'd purchased an Olight UC Universal Magnetic Button charger, and it had no such reservations. So mixed results with the i2, but no problem with the combo included 18650 or other 16340's. Since this charges a wide variety of cell types, it's a keeper. If I'd bought it separately as my sole charger, I'd likely have returned it, disappointed with it balking at charging 14500's. The included 2600mAH 18650 - Personally, I prefer having "mid-range capacity" cells, and not press the high capacity ceiling. The higher capacity cells are also more expensive. So, then, especially with the specs of the HC30, I'm fine with the 2600mAH, and, to insure design/fit compatibility, bought a second identical Nitecore 2600mAH cell at the same time.
ProsGood mechanical design and build quality Good modes and mode spacing Charger handles a broad range of cell types and sizes Included 18650 cell's capacity is adequate, the 2600mAH size is reasonable in capacity and price
ConsWould have been nice to have a middle ground brightness between 1 and 70 Lumens i2 Charger doesn't seem to handle 14500 cells "out of their box", but charges them once otherwise charged No Tail Cap magnet No provision for split ring or lanyard apart from rigging to the snap-on pocket clip

Powerhouse Headlamp
The Combo provides the charger for those who don't yet have one, and the all important Li-Ion 18650 battery. I always feel it best to buy at least one of the manufacturer's own branded batteries for first uses. While the capacity is in the lower range for 18650;s, it is adequate for most purposes. Experiences/Comments: The HC30 - well constructed, modes and functions well thought out. Strobe at double click moves this into a personal safety companion role as well as headlamp. Operational modes are well spaced and User Interface straightforward. Turbo level with 18650 makes this a powerful light, again moving the purpose to more general outdoor purposes than simply that of a headlamp. Even with two CR123A cells the HC30 is a great light (however, the 18650-size tube diameter means the cells will rattle a bit). The Headband - Comfortable, won't slip due to over the top strap. Will say that I'm a bit worried about the silicone rubber holder for both long term durability and material degradation. Time will tell. The Charger - charged the 18650's from Nitecore (I bought a 2nd of the same capacity) without issue, also charged two 16340's (ICR's with protection circuitry). However I needed to do a plug-unplug for the charger to stop alarming (all LED's blinking) to charge an IMR 16340 and an XTAR ICR 14500 800mAH with protection. Would not charge an Efest ICR 14500 800mAH, although an Olight UC Universal Magnetic Charger did the job without question. I'm thinking the charger is a bit too sensitive. The Battery - I prefer to size the battery to the task rather than getting the biggest capacity (which, for Li-Ion's can lead to size or charging issues in addition to bigger cost-investment risk). The Nitecore 2600mAH is adequate for a camping adventure, and any other role (general outdoor search or personal safety strobe) wouldn't demand the longest run time, either. I might invest in a larger capacity for using this as a headlamp for more than a weekend adventure, but I'd always bring a backup 18650 and a pair of CR123A's in a plastic case. Bottom line: Based on my experiences I'd not recommend this combo without stated caveats. I would recommend the HC30 itself, but suggest a buyer may want to choose another capacity 18650, and given the "sensitivity" I experienced, either a different charger if they had none, or this one for more general use with Li-Ion's and NiMH's.
ProsLight, Headstrap, Charger, and Battery are well built, materials appear durable, practical. Light has good modes and mode user interface - especially strobe at any double click Light has Mode Memory - Good Charger states wide use for ICR, IMR Li-Ion of almost all sizes, NiMH and NiCad cells. Headband - Comfortable, useful in several modes.
ConsCharger - Experiencing alarms for ICR 14500's and IMR 16340's that appear due to this charger being "over" sensitive (since other chargers have no issue with same cells) Headband - Silicone Rubber holder bears long term evaluation for durability and material stability (no breakdown to stickiness)

ANOTHER Great Nitecore!!
It is so compact and handy! I have three other Nitecore headlamps and this is the one I like best. It is so powerful for its size. The batteries seem to last longer than in the other headlamps!
ProsHandy and can be used as a stand alone flashlight. Batteries seem to last longer for some reASON.

Very bright, great value
I was impressed, but conditionally so. And this is possibly because all I've read about NiteCore is like it descended from heaven or something. Okay. I bought this mainly to see if I could use it for backpacking - UL backpacking for the most part. Not sure if I'll make this a part of my staple gear list because of the weight: 4.7 oz. with rechargeable battery. I'm planning to take it on my next short trip - for fun and to test. I've been using a Petzl e-lite for about 15 years. 1 oz. and very reliable. Most serious backpackers don't even need a flashlight - maybe a .25 oz. key chain light to find the privy at night. Unless you're afraid of bears - or the dark - then get this light. I also may try it for night running, and to have around the house. At the least, it's cool. I think this would be an outstanding light for hunting, boating, spelunking, or about any general purpose.
Pros- Very bright. I have no idea why anyone would need anything over about 300-400 lumens. 1,000 lumens is insane. Made our front yard look like day time. Wide center hot spot and nice side spill. - Nice selection of lighting levels and features. The "location beacon" is freaky. It's like your own little airport or something. And the strobe is pretty crazy too. - Intuitive, single clicky switch. You have to click each time or click and hold, not like Fenix' "semi-press' to change levels. I do like the "click" feature. - Headband is comfortable and well made. - Price point makes this an outstanding value.
Cons- I'd brand this as an "enthusiast's" level device, not "tactical." Decently made, but I don't equate with SureFire or even those original Inovas. But this is not priced like a SureFire either. - Since CR123A batteries are smaller in diameter, they are a bit "loose" inside the flashlight. It's really made for the rechargeable cell. - The posted burn-time specs were developed using a 3,400 mAh battery. The bundle comes with a 2,600 mAh battery. How about a chart for the 2,600? Or just including the 3,400 that everyone wants? - I'm wondering about the two o-rings that hold the light to the head strap. I know SureFire uses a similar system in their $200 light. Would rather have a "clicky" more secure fastening system. Be interesting to see how long the o-rings keep their holding power. - The recharger is interesting. Comes with a huge instruction sheet but does not say how to know when the battery is fully charged or much time a full charge may take. Assume "100% led lit" means it's charged. Or do the math: battery capacity / 1,000 mAh charge rate = time.

Great Headlamp
As someone who is always working on something in low light, under a dash, in a compartment, or just after dark when I really should have already quit, I find this to be a great light. It is compact, sturdily made, bright, and very functional compared to many other less spendy lights I have purchased over the years. Step up and buy a light that will work well for years. Paul H.

Ultimate hunting light
I've been looking for a heavy duty light for a while and I finally found it. Can't say enough about this headlight. Powerful bright multiple settingsources and it's metal. I love how it's offset to one side and you can also use the provided clip to attach it to your pocket.
ProsMultiple settings Offset to one side Heavy duty metal housing Pocket clip
ConsMetal housing may get a little hot.

Great value
I have been waiting for Battery Junction to offer this Nitecore bundled deal again for the HC30. When it came back, I jumped at the chance to purchase it. The bundle makes the package $20.42 cheaper than if I bought each item separately. The addition of the newer version of the i2 charger is a bonus too. I will write a review on each item after I get a chance to test them, but obviously, getting everything you need in a bundled deal cannot be beat. The order arrived two days ahead of schedule too.
