BFL-2000 Ultra LED Borescope Light Source


Our BFL series of light sources have long been considered the brightest borescope illuminators on the market and the new BFL-2000 further cements that reputation by pushing light output to unprecedented levels. This compact and portable light source eliminates the need to carry bulky AC powered light generators and the LED design eliminates the need for expensive bulb replacement. The BFL-2000 is also our first fully rechargeable light source and allows the use of regular CR123A batteries so you're never without power.

So how bright is the BFL-2000?


Other LED light sources advertise a "lumen" rating of the brightness measured directly at the LED emitter. Lumen ratings are useful for comparing the relative light outputs of flashlights but cannot be meaningfully applied to borescope light sources because they do not take into account how much light is lost between the LED and the tip of the borescope. The only light measurement that matters with borescope illuminators is how much light actually reaches the working end of the scope. Measured at the tip of a 7" Hawkeye borescope the BFL-2000 is actually 50 times brighter than a standard MiniMag light handle (150,000 LUX vs 3,000 LUX)! The unique lensing system in our BFL series of light sources is designed to efficiently channel the light output from the LED directly to the tip of the borescope. This system sets our BFL light sources apart from other flashlight based LED borescope lights and allows the BFL-2000 to be many times brighter while consuming just a fraction of the battery power.


The true measure of a good borescope light source is how much light reaches the end of the scope. Try the BFL-2000 yourself on your favorite borescope. You'll be amazed by the difference or we'll give you your money back!

BFL-2000 Limited Edition

To mark our introductory release of the BFL-2000 we have produced a limited run of five "Limited Edition" lights. These BFL-2000 "Limited Edition" models have been specially calibrated to deliver 35% more light output than the standard BFL-2000 (200k versus 150k) making them by far the world's brightest handheld borescope illuminators. Each light includes a serialized certificate showing the light output measured during testing. This was a limited production run of five lights and will not be reproduced.
