GREEN PREDATOR/VARMINT HUNTING LIGHT RECOMMENDATIONS

Hi, I’m looking for any recommendations for a green light to be used primarily for hunting hogs and coyotes at night. I know the Convoy C8 is highly recommended, but i have no idea what emitter or other specific technical items to look for. I have a few Convoy’s that i really like including a Convoy L21A KW CULPM1.TG 8A Driver (which was a great recommendation from this board) and a few S2’s. i’m looking for the most throw possible with a max budget of $50. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks

Heres a link to the Convoy AliExpress store where I searched “green light”

I think this should be a complete list of every Convoy light available with a green emitter.

They all appear to use either the Osram KP CSLPM1.F1 or KP CSLNM1.F1 emitters.

Do you know if they make a pressure switch for these?

Thats probably the Convoy L21B with Green Osram (KP CSLPM1.F1).

Here it is from Convoys official AliExpress store with a 21700 cell included – https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003178875569.html?spm=a2g0o.store_pc...

And here it is without the 21700 included. – https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003137606838.html?spm=a2g0o.store_pc...

I just mentioned this to someone a week or so ago…

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0928HQ9WV/

Single mode PC green (fancy CSI.NY emitter) with all the accoutrements for huntin’ and killin’.

Price went up since I got it, but it’s got a nice tight beam and throws like The Hell.

Ah, here we go…

Osram green emitters doesn’t have correct green wavelength required for hunting. Several hunters confirmed after i made them Osram green and XPE2-hunting green S2+. 
There are now even more powerful SST-10 but you’d definetly try awoid Osram Greens.

They’re just for fun…

That’s those CSI.NY ones, right? Yeah, those are PC green, ie, phosphor-converted green. Blue LEDs with green-emitting phosphor, loads more powerful than pure green-emitting LEDs.

I noticed that and commented in the review that it looks like filtered-green, ie, you see predominantly green, but other colors show up as well, albeit subdued, vs a pure green’n‘black view.

Anyone wanting pure green in a decent but cheap host, lookit the HS-802s that are out there. Usually come in red or green LEDs, nice deep reflector so it “pushes” the flood-cone out in front of you and captures more emitted light from the emitter, and throws decently enough with an XP-E2 or somesuch.

Doubt any come with an SSTwhatever, but might be moddable.
