    OK this could get painful for you/messy but I'd take a set of batteries and the charger

    Agree. Its also a good idea to have a spare set of batts and charger on hand.

    I am all good thanks mate. Just thought that remote switch would be an obvious part of the package. I like mine.

    Just remember a few things with the 2X.

    * Very high performance light and it needs the best batts possible for good runtimes - this means Panasonic/Maxtoch 3400 protected buttontops. Maxtochs are rebranded panasonics.
    * Runtime on continuous max is about 75 mins on HI with 365,000 lux output, but we have set MEDIUM mode also to a huge 250,000 lux or 1000 meters max. Medium is your normal hunter mode and will give 100 minutes plus runtime on continuous running. Hunting almost never continuous running - always shut offs for chatting, reloading, cuppas etc so I get 2 to 2.5 hours from set of batts on MED.
    * LO mode is set at about 400m max and ideal for closer shooting - possums etc
    * Check at purchase and from time to time thereafter that switch is firmly screwed into tailcap.
    * Leave threads pretty dry for max electrical contact - a hint of CRC is ok but not non-conductive greases.
    * Torch light does not fade as batts run down. Regulated output means light will run at near max for batt life then suddenly switch off.
    * New Maxtoch batts may need full 12-15 hours to charge 100%.
    * Torch has mode memory. See notes with package.
    * 2X HI range is 1200 meters in perfect conditions. Atmospheric dust and moisture can cut this down, though wamer led tint will help cut through a degree of mist.

    Brian might think of other comments .... No plans to improve on this 2X model at this time. It is top of the tree as a dual purpose (scope/handheld) lightweight hunter at the moment

    Awesome info @mudgripz. Any update on when we can expect to see the new headlamp?
