It would be so convenient if military adversaries only struck when the sun was up - OK, dream on.

It would be so convenient if military adversaries only struck when the sun was up … OK, dream on. But for those times when warfighters need to identify details of faces or must observe information pertaining to buildings, targets, or tactical surveys after the sun’s gone down, Magnalight’s RL-85-10W1-IR Infrared handheld night-vision spotlight just might come in handy. While some IR spotlights provide short-range visibility, the RL-85-10W1-IR proffers an IR light beam measuring up to 1,800 feet. And worrying about failure doesn’t need to be an option: The 50,000-hour-service-life spotlight is powered by 3 W Lithium ion batteries that afford 17 hours of runtime on just a mere 2-hour charge. And if partial charges or inconsistent charging sessions occur, the spotlight’s batteries will not degrade as a result.

Not only that, the RL-85-10W1-IR LED spotlight weighs only 14 ounces, perfect for preventing further load-carrying fatigue for troops. And resistance to chemicals, UV, impact, and water are built-in, as is an ergonomic pistol grip. And two versions of the IR night-vision spotlight are available: a cutting-edge, 4th generation night vision 940 nm configuration or a model sporting an 850 nm IR wavelength suited to the night vision wares most commonly used these days.
