The nice thing about sodium lamps is that they can be filtered easily because they spike at a few points in the 550-650nm range IIRC.

Default Re: What lights do you have?

Erns, do you have a good Q5 thrower (Tiablo, DBS, etc.)? If so, do they throw equally well or better than the X-thrower? I would think that the Q5 throws better because of the smaller emitter size, but the SST has a lot more light coming out, so I'm not sure... I have a Spear clone and basically want to know which one throws further.

Default Re: What lights do you have?

The farthest thrower I had was the Tiablo A10. The A10 uses a Cree R2.

Tiablo A10 R2 WC



Olight SR90 Intimidator SST-90



It was the farthest thrower until I got the Olight SR90 SST-90. I think the reason the Olight SR90 out throws the Tiablo A10 is because it uses a larger reflector and the SST-90 is using by 6 18650 batteries vs the 1 18650 the Tiablo A10 R2 WC uses.


Tiablo A10 R2 WC, 1, 18650 @ 210' or 64 meters



Olight SR90 SST-90 @ 210' or 64 meters

So the A10 throws farther than the X-thrower?

Yes the A10 out throws the X-Thrower.

If the X-Thrower used a SMO reflector it would throw much more. The OP smooths out the beam gives it less throw.

The X Thrower is has more of a flood beam the A10 more of a "pin point" beam.

Ok, thanks. You just saved me from buying another light I don't need.

The lamps last a LONG long time, but they get very dim over 30,000 hours. People don't replace them because "hey, it still turns on, so it's not burnt out" and then they have dimly lit areas.

Yes, but there are lots of other spikes from the mercury. Show me a filter that can filter this:



I believe you're thinking of LOW pressure sodium lamps, which emit >90% of their light at 589nm. They're VERY rare in the US though.
