    recently I tested out an SL 1 at my LDS. I have other Intova lights but was a wee bit disappointed in the SL 1, it may not represent this light series.

    Question: The SL 1 I tried showed a distinct hot spot in the middle of the light beam. Other Intova lights I have do not have such a hotspot. Does the SL 1 have this issue normally or could there be some reason for such a hotspot, perhaps batteries????

    The narrow beam of this light is what I'm looking for.
    Cheers,

    Hi bwade,

    Sorry for any confusion, but the SL1 is designed as a focused beam so is supposed to have a hot spot and carry further. You may have been using wide angle beam models which do not have a focused hot spot. We design different lights with different characteristics for different applications.

    Regards,
