Many of our clients loved our Sea Lion Hunter with it's 300 metre range and modest head size. The Sea LIon Hunter was superseded by the Seal which now has a 500 metre throw but does have a larger head than most torches, by about 85%. For those who would like about 300 metres of throw the Ranger 56 is the perfect compromise, with an adjustable head about 25% larger than our NiteHunter (or many regular LED torches) but with 50% more throw.
Light Output and Beam Pattern
The Ranger 56 with its large aspheric head and slightly greater distance than usual between LED and aspheric lens (magnifying glass) concentrates every one of its lumens into it’s spot to provide a good beam out to 300 metres. This can be adjusted back to flood. There is a high beam, medium and low beam.
The runtime is 1 hour 30 minutes on High (100%), 2 hours 52 minutes on Medium/High (50%), 5 hours on Medium (20%) and 45 hours on Low (2%).
TTT and Construction
Like all of the Wolf Eyes Hunting Torches the Ranger 56 is built around the brass TTT – Thermal Transfer Tube. The Thermal Transfer Tube has three benefits, it strengthens the total body structure, it enhances electrical conductivity and most importantly drags damaging heat away from LED. If overheated LEDs suffer permanently reduced output.
The rest of the body is made from aircraft grade aluminium which is then low temperature (-20o C) Hard Anodized tactical black.
The tailcap is the Wolf Eyes Dual Tailcap, which means you can use it like a regular tailcap or screw on the included tapeswitch for faster control of your light. The Dual Tailcap also features a spring in it, combined with the spring at the front of the body, the two springs contain the battery which can move but electrical contact is maintained at all times, even with heavy calibres.
The Ranger Hunting Torch is regulated, meaning it doesn’t dim as the battery flattens. Torches usually dim as the battery flattens, sometimes just a little and often a lot. This is because the battery reduces in voltage as it flattens. The solution to this regulation, this increases the amperage as the voltage is reduced, so the optimum power or cuurent is always supplied to the LED.
The Ranger 56 LED flashlight has adjustable focus from spot to flood. This adjustable focus is acheived by screwing the head (rather than push/pull) so the torch is more resistant to recoil on heavy calibres.
The Wolf Eyes LRB168P lithium ion battery (18650) supplied with the Ranger is also used in all our other hunting torches and headlamps, giving you interchangeability. This is both an energy dense battery (meaning you only need one and so can keep the 25.4mm – 1” -standard firearm body size) and also protected for your safety.
All Lithium Ion powered Wolf Eyes torches work well in cold weather, the Ranger hunting flashlight being rated from -20o C to +60o C.
Australian Approved Charger
The Ranger features USB internal charging, meaning you can recharge it from any USB point, in your car, office, powerbank, etc. The charger with your Wolf Eyes LED Torch is Australian Approved, meaning that you can feel safe using it and all your insurances will apply.
Your Wolf Eyes Torch is fully supported within Australia. We have spares here with solid stocks to support our Police and Military partners, we also have a 1300 911 007 phone number to provide over the phone assistance. After hours there is live answering on this line so you can be looked after during working hours.
Ranger 56 torchBy: David hall on 4 May 2017This torch is awesome, by far better than I was expecting, great beam and depth
Excellent ProductBy: Gerard on 26 April 2017After looking at similar torches for some time I settled on the Wolf Eyes Ranger. It arrived promptly from the supplier, and after an overnight charge I set out the following nights to look for wildlife. Its light to carry and has an easy beam focus bezel at the front. The three step switch is easy to access on the rear of the torch and toggles easily through the power settings. Its a powerful light and easily covers the 200m range with effective light beyond that. Close up and on wide focus its a terrific general light. Narrow the beam and its a very competent spotlight. Battery life has been good and recharge times are modest. Carrying a second battery is recommended for longer use (over 1.5 hours) where full power is used.
Ranger 56By: Rebekka Jays on 5 April 2017Super fast shipping, but more importantly, great torch! Just right size, good build quality and actually throws as far as it claims. Very happy customer.
