I'm thinking about getting a couple of these ones.  Looks to be about the same quality range as the HS802, at half the price.

About $18 with free shipping.  Comes in both red and green. Trying to decide whether to get one of each or two reds.

I'd stick with red. I tried green but it's too bright

Some have reported yotes spooking at a green light.  Generally green is used for dark bodied animals like hogs.

I have used them all. I have killed a tons of yotes under white light. If they are educated then it doesn't matter the color.
I use green for hogs and had great luck. If you ever question white light take a look at this video. These guys are one of the best, they kill hundreds of animals every year under white light, looks like a football stadium when they turn on there light setup.

I run wicked lights for a weapon mounted light, they are worth the money. I have 3 of them and have sold probably 10 or so to members on here. For handheld spot lights, light force is the only way to go. They are hands down the best spotlight on the market. I run 4 of them depending on what style hunting and what I am after I mix it up.

I ordered a red one. Itís a really good price. I guess I will find out if itís cheap crappy Chinese junk. Iím only out 18 bucks if it is. The remote switch looks handy.

I just ordered 2 of the $18 ebay ones.  Both red. Thanks for the input on color.  If these don't work well then I'll save up for a wicked or similar.
