Many of our clients loved our superseded Sea Lion Hunter torch with it's 300 metre range and modest head size. The Sea LIon Hunter was superseded by the Seal which now has a 500 metre throw but does have a larger head than most torches, it's head is 82mm. For those who would like about 300 metres of throw the Ranger 56 is the perfect compromise, with an adjustable head which is 56mm in size, compared to say 42mm for our NiteHunter (or many regular LED hunting torches) but with 50% more throw.
Light Output and Beam Pattern
The Ranger 56 LED torch with its large aspheric head and 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 on the hunting torch version with it's dual tailcap (which includes a tapeswitch) and on the Procap version (best for general use) there are four levels and two strobes.
The runtime for this powerful throwing LED torch 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%).
Dual Tailcap or Procap?
The Ranger 56 LED torch is available with your choice of Procap or Dual Tailcap. The Dual Tailcap has the ability to have the included pressure activated tapeswitch screwed on so the torch can be operated from the trigger or forestock, it can also be used without the tapeswitch. The Procap makes selecting the different levels of output easy and can be done before or after turning the torch on.
The Wolf Eyes Dual Tailcap means you can use it like a regular tailcap or screw on the included tapeswitch for faster control of your hunting torch. The Dual Tailcap also features a spring within it, combined with the spring at the front of the battery compartment, the two springs contain the lithium ion rechargeable battery which can move but electrical contact is maintained at all times, even with the recoil of heavy calibres. There are four levels of light output available with the Dual Tailcap.
The Wolf Eyes Procap allows easy changing of levels by rotating a ring on the base of the torch and offers two strobes and four levels of light output.
Generally hunters choose the Dual Tailcap Ranger 56 LED torch and the Procap Ranger 56 LED torch is chosen for general use.
TTT and Construction
Like all of the Wolf Eyes General and 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. This means your LED torch has reduced output for the rest of it's life, a common complaint from LED torches with lightweight bodies which provide little to no heatsinking.
The rest of the torch's body is made from aircraft grade aluminium which is then low temperature (-20o C) Hard Anodized tactical black.
The Ranger 56 LED 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 true of incandescent torches and LED torches. This is because the battery reduces in voltage as it flattens or discharges. The solution to this regulation, this increases the amperage as the voltage is reduced, so the optimum power or current is always supplied to the LED ensuring your torch continues at optimum brightness. This also ensures your LED wont partially overheat from a too strong battery, again causing reduced output for the life of the torch.
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 56 LED torch is also used in all our other hunting torches, LED 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 LED torches work well in cold weather, the Ranger 56 LED hunting flashlight is no exception, being rated from -20o C to +60o C.
Australian Approved Charger
The Ranger 56 LED torch 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 Hunting TorchBy: stan karaoutsadis on 9 April 2018Great build quality and tested the torch out one night. Really good throw of light and adjustment. Easy to use and mounted on rifle for the next night time hunting trip.
Very happyBy: Lorraine Pevitt on 1 January 2018My husband was very happy with his gift of one of your torches. He has used it when hunting with great success
What a amazing SpotlightBy: Fredy on 21 November 2017Forget these 'Made in China' CREE 8000 plus lumen Spotlights. The Ranger is the real deal. Ultra bright light, cristal clear spot, easy to operate and the best of all it's always charged thanks to the micro usb slot (very handy to keep it in the car).
SecurityBy: Michael on 18 October 2017I got this one as I'm night patrol security. I have been totally staggered as to it's performance. Other lights on the market don't come close to this. Even the police I deal with are impressed by this light. I love it & I will be ordering lots more in the future.
WowBy: Alistair on 25 August 2017Cannot recommend this product highly enough, tough construction and the flexibility of being able to focus or diffuse the beam makes this very versatile.The service from Wolfeyes was exceptional- email notifications about delivery and follow up fantastic- received torch quickly
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.
ranger56By: graeme dickinso on 14 March 2017Excellent torch. USB charger a great addition. Range is really amazing for such a small torch
AwesomeBy: Trent "One Shot" on 14 February 2017PROS - throws further than a quarterback - small - CONS - none so far
Very GoodBy: Angelo on 13 February 2017I have a bunch of Wolf Eyes and other torches, but get out a lot so ordered one of these Rangers as soon as I saw the email. Arrived Friday and tried it at the oval at the end of my street. Pretty impressed, throws 50% more than other Wolf Eyes except the Seal, probably 3/4 as strong as that, but of course has the much smaller head. All in all couldn't be happier with the torch, another winner, thanks guys.
