The R-11 rechargeable HID handheld light from Magnalight.com is a portable and rechargeable HID light that provides power and output that matches or exceeds the performance of higher priced HID tactical lights while including more accessories and features. Designed around HID and lithium-ion technology, this powerful handheld light is built to withstand demanding conditions and provide durable and reliable operation that can be counted on with every use. The 35 watt HID bulb in this portable light produces 3,200 lumens and has a color range of 4300K, resulting in an intense light beam with very good color rendering characteristics. Reaching over 3,000 feet in length, the power of this light beam in standard spotlight configuration makes this rechargeable and portable light ideal for R military spotlighting applications as well as utility and emergency services where effective and long range lighting is a must. The HID bulb has no filament, making it much more resistant to vibrations and rough handling than ordinary incandescent bulbs. The lithium-ion battery pack has none of the memory issues of older rechargeable battery technologies and provides 90 minutes of run time on a single charge. Users can charge the battery as little or as much as needed without worrying about things like fully depleting the charge before recharging in order to preserve battery life. This light can be operated from the included rechargeable battery or connected to an external 12-24VDC power source such as a vehicle cigarette plug via an optional accessory cord.

The R-11-IRF milspec grade infrared lens filter is constructed of machined aluminum with a borosilicate lens that allows 93% of the light energy produced to pass, resulting in a powerful and invisible 850Nm infrared light beam that is ideal for covert operations and applications. This lens filter is sealed to the front of the lens with a steel bracket and thumb nuts, and a high temperature silicone gasket that prevents light spillage. Combined with the R-11 rechargeable light, this infrared lens filter provides a high power/go anywhere IR light source that is ideal for military, security and law enforcement applications.
