Wolf Eye's Crocodile
« on: November 04, 2006, 09:35:10 PM »
I just received a Wolf Eye's Crocodile from Mike at Pacific Tactical Solutions.

I will be comparing this light and a variety of other lights with some beamshots within the next week or so. Until then I'll leave you with some pictures :)





Very Nice reflector for that "Perfect" surefire style beam











Tail Led's for up to 9 Lumens output and battery meter when the main light is activated.

HID-35W: Crocodile-I (K3400/12) HID Tactical Search Light:
 
Details... Components:

C1 Head (Bezel-HID-Lamp assembly)
LRB -1268 Li-ion battery pack
CH - 1240 AC Charger
DH - 1240 DC Charger
C1 - carrying belt
solid suitcase
 Specifications:

Power:12V/40W
Headlight: 3400lumens/120minutes 2000lumens/180minutes
LEDTailcap light :9lumens/120hours
Weight: 2154 g (Including battery pack)     4.75 Pounds
Length: 439mm     17.28 inches
Housing diameter: 44mm         1.7323 Inches
Head diameter :128mm     5.04 Inches

7 x LED tail - cap also works as Li-ion battery pack capacity meter:
A. 6 x LED shines, capacity 75% - 100%;
B. 5 x LED shines, capacity 50% - 75%;
C. 4 x LED shines, capacity 25% - 50%;
D. 3 x LED shines, showing the capacity is low, the Li-ion battery pack needs to be re-charged
 


That's the first unit I've seen with the reflector cut around the return wire. Makes for a really tight bulb hole but can it be seen in the beam in any way. Wonder why they did not go ahead and remove the insulator from the return wire for less shadow effect... Would this be a better solution than just a tight return wire & tight bulb hole... The textured reflector will take some throw off the light. Would be nice to have a choice of textured or SMO reflectors. The LED's in the rear are definitely a plus when you only need a little light. Hope more lights incorporate these on there units.

Beamshot!  Beamshots!  Impressons!   Please

Sweeeeet light, Mac!

Curious what the space-age-polymer to metal ratio is on the thing.
Personally, I think leaving the ceramic in place and notching the reflector is better than cracking it off.
With the right reflector geometry and finish, the "shadow" is totally insignificant in real life.
The D1 type bulb inside that massive orange peel ought to be one helluva nice illuminator.

BTW, howd'ja score that clear ano Polarion?? :o

Those are some great pictures and descriptions.  That is the best looking reflector shape I have seen....ditto on the case.  There seems like a lot of lights in this 30-40W HID category now.

Hi !

I would be interested in you assessement of the Crocodile. I was impressed but I thought my Polarian X1 which as you already know is a 35 watt HID was far superior in throw and in color. The Crocodile seems to have that bluish tent so common to most HIDs while the Polarian seemed much whiter. Since this is very subjective, I'd be very interested in your assessment. Thanks
