Which one do you guys use? I'm looking to either helment or weapon mount it. Also, does anybody have IR lighting on their UTV or truck?

the 501 is ok, but nothing like the UNV, I built my own, same exact thing UNV sells for $194.95 costs me $35 to build

you buy the T20 flashlight for $20, buy the 5 mode driver board and an Oslon black IR LED for another $15, pull apart, remove the existing driver board and LED and replace with new parts, you will also need special glue to hold down the LED board....

That is why I stopped at 3 watts. Didn't want to deal with a driver or the heat issues.
Havnt tested it outdoors yet but works great inside.

I also have a 4 led flood light with 80 degree lenses in front of the leds. Its made for security camera applications and is on a mini camera tripod.
Planned on using it as a feeder light but, yet to be tested.

pretty easy to do and haven't seen any heat issues, the main advantage is that its zoomable...
