Vexilar Night Light

6 posts in this topic

I use a small dark portable and I'd like more light in it. The Vexilar Night Light looks like it might help, but I don't know where to buy one other than their web site. I'd kind of like to see one before I buy it to know if it's worth it. Does any one here use one? How bright it is and how much does it affect the battery.

Thanks.

I think I've seen them at Gander Mtn. in the electronics sections. I'm sure larger bait/sport shops would carry vex accessories.

Cabelas has them in stock in Owattonna, I thought I was going to purchase one on Saturday but it was just to crazy with people to deal with.

say_der - The tap lights are nice if you want to alluminate inside your tub area. I have used the Vexilar light and the HT Sonar light and my preference is the HT it's cheap about $15 has a telescopic rod that goes from 10" to 18" and the head can be rotated 360 degrees and directionally any way you want it. It uses very little juice off the battery comes with nice clips. It has a dome light for a bulb like you would have in a car. I used mine for over 3 seasons and have yet to replace the bulb. It lights my fishing area and I can tie jigs with it without moving the ubit from the hole. However the wire that runs through the telescopic tube to the head as you extend it it has a tough time sliding through the bottom of the telescopic rod base but I fixed mine by running a light coat of clear silicone grease on the wiring and dabbing a little grease inside the base end of the telescopic pole, a cuetip is fine for this application. It will work well for you I have em on both of my sonars. Nice to have if you fish at night. It's the cheapest most effective light for a sonar that I have seen. National Sports has em or you can go through HT Enterprises. Good luck

I bought my Vex flex light at Cabela's, but any place that sells Vexilar should have them. They're about $15, if I recall, but that was 4 years ago.

They don't drain a good batter much, and they're especially useful if you can charge your battery at the end of they day. On a two-day trip, I'd not use one unless you can charge the battery in between outings.

I like mine, but I'm about to take it off and store it/sell it, because I got one of the cool headlamps that have been all the rage on this forum. Since they're attached to your head, they are way more mobile and versatile than the fixed Vex light. Cost you about $10 more than the Vex light, and will help you in a lot of ways a Vex light can't.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!

    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
