Anyone running a red sun pill and how do you rate it over standard red pill looking to improve my t20 which use for scanning when on foot, then switch to drone for the shot don’t want to spend £28 plus delivery if not significantly better as my torch draw is full enough

Carnt comment on Clives red sun , but a cree driven at 1.4 amp , particulary in red/orange will give a fair bit of distance in a t20 , not to hard to build yourself under a tenner....

Hi poppy mae
Sadly haven’t got the gear or the skills, like sound of orange as my eyes always did better with that particular filter back in the day we used to strap lightforce lamps to our rifle and lug batteries around in army webbing, it’s my understanding that all the improvements of late are down to the leds been driven a little harder

Probably 2 things , a decent binn number for the led ( quality ) and yes being driven harder , Bob off here had my last red/orange led fitted in a t20 , reds good , but the red/orange is a nice change , still got my lightforce and filters always a place for a lamp.....
