I have had two of these now and both turn off and dim out randomly and always shut off as soon as you shoot. I thought the first one was a fluke so I sent it back and the second one started doing the same thing. (A week out of the return window) I liked it so much that I purchased the afocal doubler to go with it and now I’m just beyond frustrated. This thing is junk. Works great when it works. But since it shuts off when your shoot and flickers most of the time it’s not worth it. Update: I discovered that it’s not that unit itself that is faulty. It’s the battery that comes with it. The charger has dimples the battery and no longer makes solid connection. (It’s only been recharged 3 times). Comparing it to a spare battery I had it’s noticeably shorter. I switched out to the spare battery and have had no issues since. This illuminator is crazy bright. I highly recommend it but you have to get a new battery. I don’t know how they didn’t notice at Armasight. Ah well. It works great now.

OMG This thing is almost TOO bright. The light level can be adjusted, the width can be adjusted. it's light weight. It is the best light I have ever bought. nothing can hide from this thing. I use it on my ATN X Sight II 5x20. I have to put it closer to the end of my 16 inch ar 15 barrel because the light is so bright that it floods the scope if it's to close to it on the highest setting.

This light is a major upgrade for the light that came with my x sight2 scope. It has 4 different light settings and flood or spot beam that works great for different situations. The rechargeable battery is also a big plus.

Great product! Like all Armasight products it’s built like a brick $&*#@ house. I use one on a Armasight Drone pro 10X with a Armasight XLR-IR A-Focal Doubler, that doubles the distance of XLR-IR850 IR beam for long range hog hunting in Florida. I use one on a ATN X-Sight II 3-14x Smart Day/Night Riflescope. The IR illuminator that come with that unit kinda sucks. I use one hand held with a Armasight Spark G CORE IIT Night Vision Goggle.

Just what I was looking for in a long range IR. The beam adjustment Works great for long and shot range. Simple to use, not sure on battery life, the light has several settings for brightness and I have not experimented with them yet,

IF YOU HAVE A DIGITAL NIGHTVISION SCOPE THIS IS A HAVE TOO!!!!!!!!!!! I HAD ANOTHER BRAND AND THIS LIGHT WILL OUT PERFORM IT BY 300-400 YDS. THE MOUNT WOULD NOT WORK ON THE RAIL ON MY SCOPE BUT A 1IN SCOPE RING WORKED PERFECTLY. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE TO THIS LIGHT IS THE BATTERY IT DOESNT LAST AS LONG SO I HAD TO UP GRADE.

I purchased the XLR IR850 to enhance the nighttime target acquisition of my X-Sight. This IR flashlight illuminates the area, quite nicely, out to about 140 yards. It also provides just OK illumination to about 250 yards, which suits my needs nicely. This flashlight is a "tad bit" on the large size, but is well worth the extra few ounces and slight width increase it brings to my rifle. The supplied battery and charger is a plus, but the battery does not last long, at full strength, when "night hunting". Overall this is well worth the price, I highly recommend it, and, Optics Planet is a great on line seller who stands behind all items they sell.

This unit is fantastic. Soild well made beam focus is smooth and works very well. The power settings are located on the rear and are very easy to use. The included charger and picatinny rail mount ate of great quality and fit my sirius very well Couldnt be happier with purchase.

I'll start with the negative side to this IR... When it's at its most tightly focused position you will see artifacts in the beam. That's all that I have found wrong with it thus far. It solid. It's focusable. It has adjustable brightness settings. On high and tightly focused it's useful to about 300 yards on my digital NV. It's smaller than most of the lesser cost ones on the market but with the same or better output. Run time on the 2 CR123s or 1 18650 is great. I haven't yet ran it down after hours of hunting. The best part is the tail switch. It rotates and has 6 click to positions with stops... OFF, low, medium, high, turbo, OFF. So just turn the switch all the way one direction or the other and you know that it's turned off without having to look through the NV or check the frontal glow to tell. Red glow is minimal for it's available light output. Includes the picatinny mount and mine also included an adapter to rimfire dovetail.

I tested the device with the worst night vision device I own (a 2 year old digital monocular). I tested the device a few hours before sunrise. I was looking across a field with dead grass (tan). With the naked eye, I could see a clump of trees a 50 yards and could see the point at which the treeline began 105 yards away. I could not see detail. On the widest field of view, I could clearly see details in the woodline 105 yards away. I could also clearly identify a foot bridge at 150 years. As I began to focus the beam, the details of the footbridge were clearly identifiable and the "shadow' areas disappeared. I was not able to go to a complete beam focus, an artifact became visible in my digital device. The digital device has never had such a clear and bright display. For my purposes, I will not need the focal doubler. I'll probably buy one if I see a great deal but only because I am a gadget guy, I like have more equipment than I need and my eyes are getting old.

Great IR illuminator. The light has a good flood and can focus to over 300 yards. You can not see the light with the naked eye and there is a very faint glow at the bulb. I give it 5 stars. The only drawback is the need for the rechargeable battery. I would prefer a AA or AAA battery because sometimes I can't get to electricity for a recharge.

I purchased a streamlight TAC IR illuminator and this Armasight IR illuminator. They are both great. But Armasight had the edge bc of the ability to widen or narrow your beam and choose how bright you need your light. I was able to spot cows about 400 yards out with a gen 1 monocular. That is awesome! Highly recommended

Got it for my Armasight Prime 5X gen1+ night vision monocular. Really adds extended range to the built in IR Illuminator... lights up distant objects! Easy to mount and use... does not add much additional weight.

This illumination is a great piece of kit. It’s of quality construction and and I’m impressed with the amount of IR light that it throws (100s of yards) in the field. I can’t tell much difference between the middle and high settings, but they’re all good. The rechargeable 3.7v batteries are the way to go too and I’m using other flashlights with that system. I opted instead for a fairly elaborate helmet mounting system, using PVS-7 NVGs, a MICH compatible helmet, this Armasight IR flashlight on the left side, an expensive Armasight (made by Norotos, Inc.) helmet mount, and a multi—color flashlight on the right side (achieving a nice weight balance). With that setup, the built-in IR on the NVGs isn’t needed, but might come in handy in a pinch at close quarters. The light can be helmet or gun mounted with an appropriate Picatinny rail adapter.

This is a great product from optics planet and Armasight! It has two different ways to use batteries. The infared light is really bright out to and over 300 yards. You can focus the infared light from a wide beam at close distances to a more narrow beam of infared light at longer distances. This infared light is well with the money. It is just as good as infared lights that cost a whole lot more. The only down side is that it may be alittle bigger and weigh alittle more. This is the item you need if you are operating a genereation 1 or 2 night vision system and really upgrades it in my opinion. You can't go wrong buying this product.
