Battery life: 10:20 hours
With Hikmicro LYNX LC06, the manufacturer states that the battery life is 10 hours with the CVBS and Wi-Fi function off at 25°C. We tested the device, and our measured time was 10:20 hours.
We tested the device at 23.9 – 25.2°C, as you can see in the video. The temperature was similar to the temperature that the manufacturer provides and is usually used for testing.
Please keep in mind, that while testing the device, we didn’t use any functions. As the manufacturer states, the Wi-Fi hot spot function decreases the battery life. That might also happen if you’re using other functions, so we can expect that the battery life will be a little shorter in real-life situations.
We tested the device with the default settings, as it comes out of the box. When testing the battery life, the Wi-Fi was turned off and all the other functions (such as color mode, brightness, and contrast) were left at the default setting.
Hikmicro LYNX LC06 has a built-in battery. This means that you should always check the battery percentage before going in the field, as there’s no option to switch the battery. To charge the device, you need a type-C charger, which comes in the package. Charging is very easy, as you just plug in the charger, and when the light turns green, the battery is fully charged.
This thermal monocular also has a Standby option, which can save your battery. With the press of the on/off button, the screen turns off and the device enters the Standby mode. To use the device again, you simply press the on/off button.
We noticed that this device appears to be the same as AGM Asp-Micro TM-160 Short Range.
