IR Flashlight – DX 12-LED IR InfraRed Flashlight Silver (3*AAA) Reviews

posted by RandolphCarter on 08/31/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- The housing is well-built, solid and enough thick. I like it. - Compact and lightweight. - There is two rings seal on screw-thread of the head part and the tail, twisted tightly.
Cons:
- Very high power consumption. Current is 1.5 A with new batteries! The value of current and voltage drops during all the time of lightning. - One of leds was dimming and have died now. It seems to me this will not be the only.
Other:
- Would better with 3 AA batteries because the current is high. - Sorry, I do not have any night vision camera so could not test brightness. But I have tested it with my cell phone and photo camera. The flashlight illuminate small spot at 20 centimeters. So, it useless for me and I am thinking to remove the IR leds with white ones.
Bottomline:
Although there is cons, it nice. You can see how much it bright at a video.
