With Night Pearl Fox 35 Elite, the user has to long-press the on/off button for 2 seconds until the manufacturer’s logo appears. After the logo disappears, the image appears, and the Start up 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 11.55 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. After about 9 seconds after the image appears, the icons appear in the corners. Soon after the reticle appears (after about a second) the device, along with all functions available, is ready to be used.
You can press the zoom button prior to the device being ready to use, but it will not work until the reticle appears. The number of times we press the zoom button does not matter; the “Ready-to-use time” remains the same. Therefore, we pressed the zoom button in longer intervals, and in some testings, we did not press it at all, to compare results.
For the Night Pearl Fox 35 Elite, we used generic insertable batteries, from the Panasonic brand. The device supports both 3V and 3.7V batteries. For this testing, we used the Panasonic CR123, 3V batteries. Please note that the results might vary with the use of different ones. As it states in the instruction manual, you must select the battery type in the menu. You need to insert 2 batteries, where you need to make sure that the pair is always identical in every aspect.
If the batteries are not charged, the device also works if connected to a cable. In theory, we could also use it connected to a power bank, even though it does not charge it - when unplugged, the device (if the batteries are not charged) still turns off. But the primary use of the cable is to transport the videos from the device to your computer.
The device is easy to handle, and the buttons are easy to press even if you are wearing gloves.
We noticed that this device appears to be the same as Infiray Saim SCT35.
