Why not a LEP specific forum category?

The point of this post is to ask for a LEP specific category.

**
LEP light sure do seem to be popular. I’m even starting to think about getting one, to see it it would work with my rifle at high magnification at greater than 4-500 yards since even my fenix tk75 doesn’t have enough candela at that range for good identification of animals (and anyway, I can’t mount it to my rifle since it’s too big).

When doing reaearch about them, using the search function is quite frustrating trying to weed through bad search results.

Who here would like an LEP specific category?
Why or why not?

It could be a second section in the subforum:
Non-LED Lights.

Currently this subforum has only one section:
Non-LED Lanterns, Incandescent, and HID Lights.

I wouldn’t mind having a subforum dedicated to LEPs. I recently bought the Astrolux W3 myself. The thing is a beast. It put out candelas like there is no tomorrow. Although most people are probably in the camp, LEPs are not practical, or useful for everyday use. I’m in the camp that likes them for their wow factor. I’m even thinking of purchasing the weltooll W4 pro.

Im specifically looking for something that has a hotspot size that will illuminate what is in my scope at 10 power magnification or so. Nit sure how big that would be- guess i need to do some measurements bit i think the narrower LEP hotspost will be too narrow. I’m wondering what LEP has the fattest hotspot and not sure where to post this question. Research has been a little frustrating.

If you are worried about narrow field of view, you might want to consider this new release from Olight Javelot Mini TAC.
