Okay, so I was fiddling around with my remotes and IR sensors seeing if the A-HD was sensitive (I didn't pay much attention to that detail when buying my camera). I realized that if it was able to do Night Shot, it could be able to pick up IR Light (Infrared). Fortunately, Aiptek does make IR sensitive cameras (I was kinda concerned because the videos I watched said newer cameras supposedly have a filter or something).

Okay, long story short, my camera can act like a Night Vision camera without all the green stuff you see in those dark "Paris Hilton"-like videos. Does anyone here know where I can get a strong enough IR light or make a IR light (I live in NYC so I can probably make one) that will give me enough to see about as much as an average household flashlight?

How about a Luxeon LED? I made a Luxeon flashlight that can recharge USB devices. Yes, it can recharge the A-HD too!

Here's my instructable:

Just substitute an IR Luxeon III for the white one I used for a nice multi purpose light.
