IR/Visible Light Red+Green Helmet Light

This thread is over three months old. Please be sure that your post is appropriate as it will revive this otherwise old (and probably forgotten) thread.

Recommended Posts

Looking for recommendations for a helmet light () that has the following features:

 

IR Constant/Strobe

Red and Green Visible

 

The repro Hel Star 6 and Manta lights are ok, I'm not looking to spend more than £40-60.

AIRSOFT LIGHT FLASHLIGHT IR RED HELMET MANTA STROBE TAN SAND DE UK

 

I will be editing in ones that I find for second opinions.

 

Thanks

The Manta one you linked (repro ones found on eBay) do the job well enough and are about £20. The LEDs are really bright, which is either a good or bad thing depending on what you want.

I've got the FMA Manta, does the trick, but I will be replacing the shoddy velcro...

Yeah FMA and Element seem to be the main people making them.

I think I will go for one of them.

Or perhaps consider S&S Precision v-lites. Get 2 - 1 IR and 1 colour.

I really like them, might go for that instead. Good shout!

Have a look on eBay, there are a few on there, and the generic brand ones are cheap as.

Ah, batteries are not replaceable.

They last for ages, but your call.

True, I think it is the best option so far.

I'm going for a combo, Hel Star 6 Green + V-Lite Red/Hel Star 5 Red.

That way I get red, green and IR.

 

Thanks for the help and advice guys!
