I ordered another 501b off eBay when it arrived it didn't work.i tried a few simple things without success anyway after a few messages between my self and seller he kindly sent me out replacement torch which arrived this morning.i changed lens for convex one(that fell straight in without rubbing down)and painted reflector black.jobs a good one.only difference is size of spot/square is smaller on one than other?same torches,same lens,same seller.anyone know why?do the LEDs come in different sizes?
Hi patterdale, I may be wrong but I think it is not the size of the led but the distance of it it is from the lens as i noticed this before slightly between my torches. Maybe there is a slight difference in the length of the refractors? On mine they have been a slight different size but still good so its not bothered me as once your in a field with it the difference is hard to see.
I been using as matt says, tighter one on the gun and wider one for spotting but I not noticed a big difference while using them.
The cheap Chinese batteries have been fine, iv heared people say they are dangerous but I never seen anything dodgy about them whatsoever. A pound each from China and a bit of a wait but all been good so far.
