X70 I put a Ir black sun t 50 pill in mine but you have to cut about 8mm off the end of the tube wher you screw the pill in or the battery compartment is to long. I get 500yd plus off good clean light out of mine. I have 8 ir torches and it's one of my favourite

thanks for the reply, I can spin off 8mm no problem on the lathe, does it adversely affect the light/beam in any other way,,

No it works ok. the 8mm is the difference in the length of the pills the t50 pill is shorter. So if you just screw it in the battery doesn't touch. On one I cut the shoulder/ neck of the pill so it would screw in side the battery tube but that does two things . The lens/ head of torch can screw off and with the pill being down the battery tube it makes a very small spot beam. So I cut 8mm off or it is the difference in the length of the pills you are fitting
