Lumens: 1,210 lumens
Throw: 100 metres
Length: 154 mm
Beam Type: Reflector – Spot surrounded by flood
The Sniper II Pro is a compact high intensity tactical LED torch with 6 levels including two strobes and a huge 1,210 lumen output. Only a few short years ago this output was unimaginable in a compact handheld torch, now all this is in your hand. This is the torch chosen by SAPOL (South Australia Police) for their whole Police force, as well as being chosen by many specialist Police and Defence units throughout Australia. We would probably consider the Sniper II Pro one of the best General Duties flashlights available. It also makes a great general use torch!
Light Output and Beam Pattern
The 1,210 lumen LED in the Sniper II Pro LED rechargeable torch provides a good beam out to 100 metres. The reflector head provides a beam of spot surrounded by flood and a solid pool of light in the midrange. There are 6 levels of light output – high, medium, medium/low, low, slow emergency strobe and fast disorientating strobe. The Sniper II Pro utilises a 35mm head to give a 100 metre throw. We believe the Sniper II Pro and Pro Police are our equal best Police torch, the difference being the head size to give the required throw.
The Sniper II Pro provides 1.5 hours of light on high with the standard battery and 45 hours hours on low.
The Procap is a conventional tailswitch in the centre but has a ring around the outside to change levels. This can be used to change the level of the torch when it is on or before it is turned on. Particularly useful for say picking low before turning on to not cause too much reflection when reading or say selecting strobe before approaching offenders. It offers two strobe levels, a fast disorientating strobe and a slower emergency strobe. While unlikely that anyone will use the Sniper II Pro as a rifle torch with the Magnetic Mount (Police applications would usually use a picatinny rail mount) it is worth noting the magnets in the Procap are not compatable with the magnetic mount, we suggest installing the standard tailcap if using that mount.
TTT and Construction
The Sniper II Pro features the Wolf Eyes Thermal Transfer Tube (TTT) which is a brass liner designed to drag damaging heat away from the LED and radiate it from the body, basically using the whole bodies thermal mass as a heatsink to radiate the heat away. The body is constructed of 6061-T6 aircraft aluminium, the two metals bonded together creating a structure stronger than either metal individually. Thirdly this brass liner also provides better electrical conductivity. The body is a standard 25.4 mm (1”) allowing fitment to numerous mounts and also a good size to carry. The body is finished in a low temperature Hard Anodizing in tactical black.
The reflector is made of high temperature coated alloy, with layers of alloy films for a long lasting reflective finish.
Being Regulated means your Wolf Eyes Sniper II Pro LED torch doesn’t dim as the battery flattens. The regulation unit always maintains the optimum amount of power to the LED, meaning that as the voltage decreases as the battery flattens we increase the amperage to still provide the same current to the LED. This also works in reverse, contrary to what is advertised you do not want to use multiple batteries to overpower your LED, while it will shine brightly for a short time it will eventually overheat and suffer reduced output for the rest of it’s remaining life.
The Sniper II Pro LED torch uses our LRB168P (18650) battery which is a protected lithium ion battery. Being Lithium Ion means the battery has large reserves of power, meaning only one is required which keeps the torch profile within 25.4mm, important for a professional use flashlight and compatibility will all mounts. Being protected is very important, lithium ion batteries can discharge very quickly and also suffer thermal runaway (we have all see those videos of laptops on fire or exploding), this chip controls charging and discharging. This battery has been recently updated to allow double the amount of recharges.
Due to the Lithium Ion batteries the Sniper II Pro LED flashlight works well in sub zero conditions, unlike most batteries which lose substantial reserves of energy if used in lower temperatures. The picture below is of a Wolf Eyes LED flashlight on low, which was then put in the freezer and frozen. After 4 days it was still shining – inside the ice cube!
Australian Approved Charger
Your Wolf Eyes LED torch is supplied with an Australian Approved Charger, meaning firstly it is safe for your or your staff and secondly all your insurances apply (Building, Workers Comp, Home).
The Sniper II Pro flashlight has a removable LED which can be upgraded when suitable newer LEDs come out.
As can be seen a number of Wolf Eyes torches are waterproof including the Sniper II Pro, but we would recommend something from our diving line for diving use.
The Wolf Eyes Sniper II Pro LED torch can be personalised to suit your unit, division, command, team or organisation with engraving on the side. A great way to reduce loss and build pride.
