Tracer Led 150 Rechargeable Lamp

Recommended Posts

hi,

ive been looking around for a new lamp and at first was going to jump straight in and buy a 170 striker but then i came across the led lamps

first one i looked at was the buffalo river rechargeable which looks ok but cant find much about them other than one thread on here.

 

 

 

then i come across the tracer led 150 rechargeable lamps £70 claim to have a 500m beam and last 2.5 hours, only thing is i cant find any reviews on them. so before i buy one was wondering if anyone used them and are they decent enough to run a dog with

cheers

Arthur carter website have them on offer with lith battery pal £120 for full set

That's great value n the LED can only be a good thing in my eyes really

Just look at the cars n other LEF lighting lasts longer n better so I can only think there better really

 

But do check the website out cause I got it threw in an email on Saturday night

I've ordered one I know someone who's got one and he says it's a perfect tight spot 500 yards away he has nothing but good things to say best lamp he's ever used, but that's the one with the wire because I don't think you can get spare battery's for the handle yet

I have looked at different torches but they seem.more suited to someone who is using it for shooting rather than running a dog

 

I think I will just buy it and have a look if it's no good then I'll send it back and get a striker

 

Does anyone know what battery's fit in the handle?

Anybody actually used one? Or know if the beam would be decent for quick nights out with lurcher on small fields? Would be sound for a quick walk instead of big lamp, battery and connections coming loose all over f***ing place!

LED lamps are bright to look at but don't give much off a beam off. In my opinion stick to halogen for running dogs better beam easier/cheaper to repair

Just be carefull with the led lamps I had one and got rid because it's a white light it doesn't have anywhere the same beam distance and rabbit eyes don't really reflect back a white light I would stick to ur first idea

Think I'm going to have to find one local and have a look at it. My mates got a striker and that's pretty good. Was just hoping to get away with not carrying a battery around haha

The idea of not carrying a battery around is very appealing, especially if your back's knackered like mine is. For that reason I bought a clulite at the start of the year (can't remember which one but think it was called The Light Fantastic or something similar) but I sent it back as the beam wasn't much good out beyond about 80 - 100 yards.

That's fair enough I'm just lazy and have a problem with the cartilage in my chest. I think the next best thing is a striker and lithium battery

Looks like I'll be saving for a while haha

Any idea how long the lithium batteries last? Thinking either 14 or 22 amp
