Battery life: 5:38 hours
With Nitehog Viper, the manufacturer states that the battery life is approx. 3 hours with 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery at @ 25°C. We tested the device, and our measured time was 5:38 hours.
As you can see in the video, we tested the device at 20.8 – 23.3°C, which is similar to the temperature the manufacturer provides along with the battery life and is usually used for testing.
Do keep in mind that while testing, we didn’t press any buttons or use any functions, but that’s usually not the case when using the device on the field. Using different functions (such as video recording, changing color modes, Wi-Fi, etc.) usually affects the battery, 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 with the default settings.
The device is powered through 1 piece of 18650 Li-Ion rechargeable battery. The package includes 2 pieces of 18650 Li-Ion rechargeable battery as well as the charger (RCR123 A and 18650 Li-Ion rechargeable batteries charger), which is a nice addition, in case you want to switch out the battery while on the field.
To turn the device off, the user must hold the power button until the device turns off.
