With Hikmicro LYNX PRO-LH15, the user has to long-press the on/off button for 4 seconds until the manufacturer’s logo appears. After the logo disappears, we get the image, and the start up timer stops. Next, the device calibrates, and soon after the icons appear in the top right corner. That’s when the device is ready to be used and the second timer stops.
When measuring the time from the moment your finger presses the button and up to the part where the image appears, we can see that the actual "start up time" is approximately 8.16 seconds. When the screen first turns on, the device is unresponsive to the user's actions. For that reason, we also measured the "ready to use time", which is the period between the press of the on/off button and the point where the device starts responding to the user’s actions. When the icons appear, the device becomes responsive and is ready to be used. This is at approximately 16.47 seconds.
You can press the zoom button before the device is ready, but it starts working when the display icons appear. The number of times we press the zoom button does not matter; a singular button press is enough for the device to zoom in once it’s ready for use. This is why we pressed the zoom button in longer intervals.
Hikmicro LYNX PRO-LH15 has a built-in battery. This means that you should always check the battery percentage before going in the field, as you cannot change it. 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.
The device is easy to handle, and the buttons are easy to press even if you are wearing gloves.
Hikmicro LYNX PRO-LH15 has a Standby option, which is a remarkably useful battery-saving feature. 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.
