Our buddies over at Tri-Tronics have a pretty slick new little spotlight out on the market. The NIGHTRAZOR kicks out 180 lumens of bright white light. Even cooler, it’s just three inches in diameter, weighs less than 5.5 ounces, and doesn’t require any cords or external battery packs.
The light was designed with hound hunters in mind, who normally take to the woods in the pitch-black night. Without a doubt, it’ll fit that bill. But it’s equally useful for hunters who need help finding their way to and from their blind in the dark — something we experienced during a recent Oklahoma wild hog hunt.
Compared to other spotlights on the trip, the NIGHTRAZOR won hands-down when considering beam diameter, beam distance, size, weight, and battery life. That’s got us thinking that campers, hikers, long distance endurance runners, or cyclists will appreciate the NIGHTRAZOR — anyone who’s looking for a powerful, yet lightweight way to illuminate their way.
The NIGHTRAZOR features four beam intensities and has a battery life of 2.7 hours to 40 hours, depending on intensity. At the end of the day (er, night), the NIGHTRAZOR can be recharged through the included USB cradle and wall charger. The NIGHTRAZOR can be easily mounted on any standard bump cap, and an elastic headband accessory will be available later this spring.
