5 of 5 Awesome IR marker April 25, 2021
Reviewer: Ruben Gonzalez from Naples , FL United States  
Really bright, really clean build, and easy to use. Charging cable was wrapped with a Velcro strap. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Going to try this to see if we will outfit the entire unit with them

5 of 5 IR Safety Light March 26, 2021
Reviewer: Stacy Little from Somewhere around Texas  
Nitecore has fast shipping, I ordered one evening, shipped out first thing the next day. The Green and IR strobe has been working well, I've only had it for a couple of weeks now, but am pleased with it so far. Easy to operate!

5 of 5 NU05 MI green and IR safety light February 11, 2021
Reviewer: Chris Davis from Tempe, AZ United States  
For the quality of the product, I feel like it's very fairly priced. It's an excellent device and works great. I've used mine on two disaster relief missions and it's still holding up. The plastic piece that clips on to MOLLE broke on mine when it got snagged in a seat belt. The broken one sits on my helmet cradle now and I ordered another to fit onto my plate carrier. Hopefully this one doesn't suffer the same fate, but if it does, I know it can be replaced at a fair price.

5 of 5 Great little strobe January 25, 2021
Reviewer: Joshua Hughes from Lakewood Ranch, FL United States  
I love this strobe beacon light so much I got a second one! I have several friends who've bought this as well. It's great to have for a team or group where everyone could run the same color light. Something you don't really think about until you are in a crowd at night and need to identify each other. Highly recommended.
