The Nightfox XC5 is a powerful handheld torch designed to massively increase how far you can see with your night vision device. It features innovative updated circuitry to produce a crystal clear beam, far beyond the clarity of competitor models.

The XC5 emits 940nm infrared light which cannot be seen by the human eye, so must always be used with a night vision device. 1x 18650 battery required (not included).

Most infrared LED diodes glow red when turned on - this 940nm wavelength diode has nearly no red light, making the user very difficult to detect. Ideal for covert operation.

The 5W 940nm OSRAM 4725AS LED in this edition of the XC5 is a groundbreaking LED module with more power than any other 940nm module on the market. You'll be less visible AND see further.

The XC5 is durable and long-lasting despite weighing just 195g, O-ring sealed to be splashproof, and features Nightfox’s Rapid Focus and Dimmer Switch technology to fine-tune the beam. We've also added Surface Grip so you can focus accurately in adverse weather conditions.

You can use the XC5 with any night vision scopes or binoculars. For the ultimate night vision experience we recommend the Nightfox 100V, 110R, or Swift. Attach it to these devices with ease using the Nightfox Accessory Mount.

After Night Fox
Before Night Fox


Throughout history, humans have shied away from darkness. Unlike the many species who only emerge once the sun has set, people have extended the comfort of daylight, by gathering around a campfire or retreating to indoor safety. Night vision technology allows humans a glimpse into the night-time happenings to which we are otherwise oblivious. Our digital devices use infrared light to give you clear vision, even on the darkest of nights.
