So what makes this better than the IR filter I can put on my Surefire and still be able to see 2-300 yards?
For that to work your surefire would have to be halogen or xenon or something full spectrum incandescent. In that case led is WAY more efficienct than incandescent with 90% of the spectrum being blocked. So for a give amount of light output you will get many times more battery life and a lot less heat out of an LED that only puts out IR light. It's also just gping to put out way way way more IR light. If they surefire with the filter is even close I'll give you one for free
You have to use an image hosting site like Photobucket or IMGUR, then insert the direct code from one of them into the image function.
Or you can use the image address from your Ebay ad, like this.
Thanks for the explanation. So what does your system cost?
I am exploring price. I certainly won't make the kind of profit surefire and others make but I am a graduate student just trying to afford more range time haha. I will gauge interest and hopefully come to a price that makes it worth while but still affordable for everyone.
Question where are your components made at?
How to post photos.
This is a small venture at the moment so these compenents may change depending on viability. Right now the host and driver are Convoy. Convoy is not US made but they have a good reputation for budget gear and are leagues and leagues above "xxxxxfire" random brand stuff.
The LED is made by Osram which, if you know the industry, is one of the largest names in lighting. It's the best LED avalible for 850nm illuminators. It's also over driven too 2 amps and well heatsinked for reliability at maximum output.
