The one I currently have is the 1x magnification model. The difference
is this has a little more zoom and a little less field of view. I have
had a 2x and liked it but you can't really walk with it.
Infra-red on this 2x has a focusing lens, the 1x just has a black
plastic cover. (note: some black plastics are invisible to Infra-red,
take a look at the plastic on your tv, it may be transparent through
I really think that a review for this device would be open to debate. I can tell why someone would give this device a 1 star.
knew what I was getting when I ordered it. It is a Gen1, nothing
more. NV is nothing like on video games or the movies. I have owned
different ones and used generation 2, 2+ and 3, those are vastly better
but at a price to match.
I owned another popular brand that was
slightly bigger than this. It wasn't waterproof but the lenses could be
interchanged. That turned out to be only a very small benefit. The
higher the zoom on these, the less field of vision, which is one of the
biggest problems with Gen1.
It has less than 30 degree field of
view. That is the equivalent of looking through a toilet-roll, in fact,
a toilet-roll with green glass in front of it with distortion around
the edges. Keep in mind that you will probably not favor this over a
flashlight, unless you want to be a bit hidden.
infra-red illumination off, you may be impressed if you just get up from
your bright computer and take a walk out in the dark. It enables you
to see a little better than you will when your eyes have adjusted to the
dark. (but not much in most situations)
With the infra-red
illumination turned on you will be able to see down an ally or back yard
(about 80 feet) very well. It may be too bright for indoor use,
although you can place a finger over the light, some of the IR light
will still get through your finger and enable you to see up close.
brightness cannot be adjusted, eye piece brightness also has no
The IR light is visible on all Gen1 units, but much less
visible than a white light. Since the unit has such a narrow field of
vision, the IR light also only needs to have a narrow beam, making it
difficult for others to see you.
Something interesting about the
unit and illuminator, If you look at black nylon like webbing on a back
pack, the infra-red light may make it appear nearly light bright green.
You could use a tv remote as a small infra-red light source, you may be
able to see okay in a bedroom or down a hall. One idea is to buy some
IR light sticks, or IR IED's with motion detectors and nail them to
trees in the yard, that will make viewing in complete dark a bit better
It takes two AA batteries, the two AA last very long and
it works well with rechargeable AA's It is so light on battery, that
even when you turn the unit off it can still be used without the
illumination for quite a few seconds.(sometimes 20 sec)
Even with its
problems I like it. If you afraid of the apocalypse or just feel the
need to own some military history that will help you see in the dark,
then this may be for you.
It is well made (from Russia)
Just know what you are getting and don't expect too much.
