Our Observations

With Nitehog Viper, the user has to long-press the on/off button for 4 seconds, until the manufacturer’s logo appears. Next, the image appears, and the start-up timer stops (at approximately 7.18 seconds). At that moment, the device is unresponsive to the users’ actions, so we began pressing the ‘menu’ button, to measure the time when the device starts responding. The interesting thing is, that when you first see the image, it is zoomed in. But soon after the image zooms out, and in a few short moments, the device is ready to be used – at 8.44 seconds.

The number of times we press the ‘menu’ button does not matter – the ready-to-use time stays the same.

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 (RCR123A 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.
