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.

    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.

    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!

    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
