    Cons:
    None really. Well, it gets hot, like most IR LEDs.

    Powerful Emitter

    posted by styropyro on 01/06/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Powerful IR emitters, it's amazing how much light they emit when viewed through an infrared camera. Also, my IR emitters came on a star instead of a 20mm board, which is a great pro!
    Cons:
    None at all
