    Hi folks.
    We recently bought one of the new bushnell equinox z2 night vision monocular. It's a really effective way to see in the dark and it streams directly to a phone or tablet in real time and also records. However, the one weak spot is the IR lamp built into it. It really sucks the juice from the 4 AA batteries (to the point that a set of fully charged enloop Pro rechargeables last 10 mins and regular alklines 15). Can anyone recommend a decent, lightweight IR torch that I can strap to it, to save the batteries? Preferably either rechargeable or AA, with a range of over 200 meters.
    Cheers
    Baggins

    Pulsar do a nice small one depending on wavelength ...but a bit underwhelming for that distance...a t20 850nm will get eyeshine but not exactly light to carry
