Note: The night vision monocular mentioned in this review is the Firefield 5×50 Nightfall 2 model. This model has been shortlisted after reading and analyzing a lot of other similar products and their reviews. It is not just a random choice but rather a precisely chosen piece.
The device is equipped with a Pulse IR illuminator which helps save the battery and provide better illumination with the device.
This monocular is extremely lightweight. Weighing less than a pound. The device is powered with two CR123A batteries. The batteries will last around for 3 hours of constant use of the night vision monocular.
You could see as far as 60-70 yards in the dark with this monocular without any problem.
Here’s an amazing feedback from a veteran:
I am a military combat veteran, so I have a lot of experience with night vision. This is a Gen 1 analog low light device with a classic green display as you would see in the military. For a Gen 1 this is an outstanding buy. Most Gen 1 night visions will have a small spot or 2 in them which is natural, and so did mine. Mine was located in the outer right portion of the conical and is hardly even noticeable. The clarity is way beyond what I could have expected out of older technology like this. With two focal lenses, one in the front and rear, you can dial in for a very crisp picture. The field of view is a little narrow, but it made clear that it would be being a monocular. I am in a suburban area with a lot of ambient light bouncing off of the atmosphere and I can still see tons of stars with this product. I also like the fact that it takes AAx2 batteries so hunting for power is not a problem. Additionally, it has an infrared light that you can turn on and off if you wish. The housing is also fairly good and feels natural in my hand. If you are wondering which night vision to purchase, stop looking and start buying this before this amazing night vision monocular sells out.
