As the red and green are not achieved with filters there is no attenuation and they work very well over thirty-forty yards.
Cost is well within Jurek's recommended budget, even with a few spare batteries.
Available on line, bought my torch and batteries separately.
I have one of these, it is pretty good. I can hold the torch and bins together, with the beam in the binocular view for some pretty good night watching.
An Otter on the River Test, the highlight so far.. the torch was so strong, and the water so clear, I could see it underwater.. magic!
