Turbo IR differences
The difference between the Turbo IR and the normal IR is all our lights will focus the Turbo IR to a smaller spot beam allowing the user to see much further. You also get a much better digital picture out of your digital night vision scope with the turbo IR than you will with the normal IR.
Please note that Turbo IR 850 is much brighter and shines further than Turbo IR 940nm just like the the normal IR 850nm is much brighter and shines further than the normal IR 940nm.
When you put the Turbo IR 850nm in our 38LRX light, it will make it shine almost as far as our much bigger Coyote Cannon light with the normal IR 850nm.
Please note that the Turbo IR with our Coyote Cannon or 66LRX lights will not fill the entire screen on 2 power scopes like the Wraith HD 2X unless you zoom the scope in some.
It will make our 50LRX shine as far as our much bigger Coyote Cannon light with the normal IR.
The 66LRX with the turbo IR will shine further than our Coyote Cannon light with the normal IR.
The Coyote Cannon with the turbo IR 850nm will shine further than any other LED IR light on the market and there is not even a close second.
Any of our lights with the Turbo IR 850nm and Turbo IR 940nm will shine further than any other IR 850nm or 940nm LED light on the market that is comparable in size. In fact, our 38LRX with the Turbo IR 850nm will shine as far or further than lights that are much bigger like lights that use 66mm, 67mm or 75mm lenses.
Our 50LRX with the turbo IR 850nm will shine further than any other IR 850nm LED light on the market other than our 66LRX and Coyote Cannon lights with the Turbo IR 850nm.
Please note that if you never need to see past 200 yards then it might be best to go with our normal IR 850nm module instead because the Turbo IR is probably not going to help you see better at those distances with digital night vision. This is because most digital night vision scopes automatically adjust the brightness of the scope so when the scope gets more light than it needs it just dims the brightness down. This means a much brighter light might not look any brighter than the one that is dimmer at close distances. You will start to notice the difference when you start looking at distances the dimmer light can not fully illuminate any more because it's not bright enough. For example, if you turn on a Digital night vision scope with the stock IR light and aim it at a wall 40 yards away, the stock light will probably look as bright as our Coyote Cannon light with the Turbo IR because the Night vision digital scope is brightening the picture with the stock light and is dimming the brightness when our Coyote Cannon light is on because it puts out way more light than the scope needs. Now if you shine both on a wall 700 yards away, you wont even be able to see the wall at 700 yards with the stock light but you will see it great with the Coyote Cannon light.
We are probably the only company that sells IR hunting lights that has a meter to measure the intensity of IR light. Now the intensity will never tell you how far the light will shine but the higher the intensity is, the further the light will shine. For example, all our lights with the Turbo IR will put out about 3-5 times the intensity than it does with the normal IR. No this doesn't mean you will see 3-5 times as far, but you will be able to see further. How much further is impossible for us to say because there are just too many variables that are in play for us to say. One of the big advantages is the turbo IR 850nm will now allow users to use a much smaller light to see the same distance as bigger lights or continue to use the same light to see further with the new Turbo IR.
Run time with the Turbo IR is just shy of two hours and the light will be just as bright at 1:45 as it was when you first turned it on with a fully charged battery. The normal IR run time is about 2.5 hours but it will dim the entire life of the battery and will only be at about 60% brightness at 2 hours. This means you get a longer useful runtime out of the out of the turbo IR because most hunters will usually swap to a fully charge battery after 1.5 hours when using the normal IR so they can have a brighter light.
We know this can be confusing but you can't go wrong with either the normal IR or the Turbo IR. You can order both if you want or order the other one later on since they simply screw in and out of the light.
Please note that just like our normal IR 850 will be brighter and shine further than the normal IR 940nm, the Turbo IR 850nm will be brighter and shine further than the Turbo IR 940nm.
