They are worth every penny at the original price, let alone $10 off.

buy it. i got the xplorer with the red chip and its everything flanuva said it is and more.

i want the red dagger flashlight too but i am going to wait until they get a tail cap pressure switch for it.

lot better light than my old optronics rated at 80,000 candle power and i had to carry a 6 volt battery on my belt.

the xplorer runs on 3 AA batteries that are self contained and that little light is brighter than the optronics i had.

BUY IT...

Mike says 6 hours on High and 12 hours on low is average. I am at 8 hours on mine on the high setting and dont see any difference so far. Switched out with brand new batteries and no difference in brightness so i put the old ones back in.

Try searching for noxx flashlights. I think that is what they are talking about.There is also a link under the sponsers on the right side of this page.

By the red chip are you talking about the red lense?

Their link is on the right under HPA Sponsors.

It isnt a red lense 41, it is a red LED chip. The lense is clear.

The only thing that kept me from purchasing the headlamp (other than the fact I have three others crazy ) is the fact they run on AA batteries. For me I think purchasing batteries all the time would not be cost efficient. I prefer the 18650 batteries I can recharge over and over again.

Beag,
The thing that bothers me is if you look at the specs on the Adventure II, III, and IV they are all the same. 240 yd range, 5 watt led, but all different sizes. Why would anyone buy the 8 inch one over the 3 inch one...I'm confused. Batteries and weight/length are the only thing that changes. I know I'm very skeptical but I wonder.

Beagler,

I thought about using the 18650 and trying to modify the light, it may be something they are thinking about, because we spoke about that at the show yesterday (see my Noxx post). Right now with the circuitry, there would probably have to be a few design changes. You have to remember that the 18650's are 3.7 volts, and that the 3 AA's total 4.5 volts. That's a big difference sometimes when it comes to control chips and other electronic components.

I will stick with AA re-chargeables we have had a 18650 explode in a light it has happened to other hunters also and in cameras. made in Hong Kong.

Use regular AA's. Rechargeable batteries are only 1.2 volts compared to 1.5, and will not last as long. With the headlamp, you are losing almost 1 volt using rechargeables, which will affect performance. With the runtime of the headlamp, and compared to the gas you are using to get to your stands the whole season, buying a bunch of AA's will probably last you through the better part of a season if you keep it on low.

Thanks guys for your input! Bought the red chip this morning and we talked awhile about hpa...I tried to get them to deal with me on getting both the headlamps but no go, which is no biggie...10 bucks off was really nice of them! Everything that they told John is the same thing they told me. Cant wait to try it out!

Now you have smile

Honestly though, If you are using the headlamp just to scan and see eyes, the low setting is plenty bright. I got about 11 hours on high before I noticed a difference. Even then, it was a little bit brighter than the low setting.

used mine last night and easily picked up eyes at around the 100 yard mark on low.

it never came in for a shot, the wind was swirling and the fox took off.

love my light though.

I have the 4AA rechargeable package from Walmart, complete package as about $12. Charger and 4AA batteries. If you run a 3.7V (18650) it is .1 difference. Even with high quality throw away I see no difference in brightness and I am saving a ton of money. The rechargeable batteries seem to last longer also.

Got one of these after reading here. Great light. But a ? Should the beam of the red chip light be red? Mine is white, unless I got the wrong one. Does the white spook yotes/fox?

Davy, you may have gotten the wrong one. I think they sell 2 different headlamps, 1 white and 1 red chip...the one I got has red chip label on the package.

That is the link for the red chip one. It sounds like you got the regular one and not the predator one.

Hey, thanks. I'm going to check my invoice. I'm keeping it anyway even if it is the wrong one. Will be a good light for going in and out of the woods at dark during other seasons.
