Promising review:

I’ve got more gun mounted hunting lights than should be allowed by law. Mostly because so many of them are disappointing, to put it mildly. The Streamlight products are never a disappointment. The TLR-1 Game Spotter is, in my opinion, the very best one out there. Don’t let the low lumens number scare you off. The well-designed parabolic reflector and quality materials/construction of this light give it 31,000 candela, which is the number that matters. It throws a very tight beam downrange. Can ID the critters easily to 350 yards or so… can light their eyes out to several hundred yards.

Mounted under the barrel with a Beamshot RF9 mount, or under the fore-end with the Caldwell adapter, these things have been the most reliable, effective lights I own. You can give them silly names that impress the kiddies, box the Chinese junk up in cheesy plastic boxes with goofy Halloween graphics and outrageous (and untrue) claims… but in the end, these Streamlights are what do the trick. The TLR-1 HPL model is my other favorite, but that one will light up stuff two counties over, it seems. I don’t hit the switch on those until just before I pull the trigger. – Jeff Gu

Promising review:

If you have an armadillo problem, buy this kill light (green). After two years of trying to catch nasty, ugly armadillos with a trap, plus walking around in the dark with a white flashlight and a pistol trying to shoot them, I bought this green light two weeks ago. Then I bought a Remington 597 semi-auto .22 rifle, and mounted this Kill Light right atop the scope. Last week, I shot two armadillos over a period of three nights. Even on a pitch black overcast night, I was able to see a ‘dillo distinctly 100 yards away. Then I walked right up on it and popped it seven times. Yes! finally I saw one upside down dead. I threw the remains in the river next day and celebrated. Everything they say about this green kill light is true. If you’ve tried everything else to kill an armadillo, try this product. You’ll see it crystal clear with the naked eye regardless of night conditions. Looking through the scope at night is double amazing, too. Everything is more sharply defined. This light is incredibly penetrating. These two dillos didn’t run away as they had with white flashlights. I’ll never give up this Kill Light/semi-auto set up as long as armadillos roam this earth…or, more accurately roam the woods and bayous near my property. I finally found the answer. – mert

Promising review:

Great Light! If you are someone who needs a good solid light, and especially if you are a Nite-Hunter, this light is extremely hard to beat. It is every bit the equal, or better than lights costing three times as much, or more. Both the light, and the battery are lightweight, and the battery charge has lasted for me, on all night hunts, unlike some of the heavy, bulky batteries on other lights that I own..Tough light to beat, unless spending your hard earned money on one of the high-dollar lights for “show n tell” to impress your buddies, means more. If it does, you are probably not a serious hunter anyway. After using this light, I don’t use my other lights anymore, but use them to loan to other hunters if one of their high-dollar lights quit on them. – Curmudgeon

I like that I don’t need to continuously buy batteries for this head lamp – it’s just cheaper to operate.

But that’s also what I don’t like about it. With my old lamp I could tell when the batteries started going because the light would get more and more dim. With a rechargeable headlamp like this one, which has a lithium ion battery I assume, not only do you not get a heads up when the battery is about to die, there’s no dimming just before it does. The light just goes out. Doesn’t matter if you’re in a dark attic or crawlspace or fixing the underside of a sink. If it’s time for the battery to die, it’s gonna go and you’re gonna be without a light unless you’ve a backup.

That said, the fix is to simply get into the habit of periodically charging the device after x number of uses. One thing I did notice is that the battery life is nowhere near 100 hrs as is advertised but that could be due to temperature or some other factor.

In case Foxelli is interested in making this light a little better for the end user, perhaps there could be an indicator light to let the user know the battery is below 15%. – Scott
