To turn on the Pulsar Core FXQ50, the user must hold the on/off button of the device, until the manufacturer’s logo appears, which is at approximately 4.30 seconds. We started pressing the menu button when the logo appeared and discovered that the device is responsive as soon as we get the image. That means that the start-up and ready-to-use times are the same – approximately 7.97 seconds.
Another interesting thing we noticed while testing this device is that the ready-to-be-used timer stops at either approximately 7.30 seconds or at 9 seconds. There is no in-between.
The device uses 2 CR123 batteries, therefore we used this exact one from the Panasonic brand. Because this Pulsar device has removable batteries, the user has the option of having multiple batteries that can be switched while on the field in case the battery runs out, which is a useful feature. You also get an additional insert - when the device is plugged in you can charge it with an external battery source (micro-USB or EPSI3 or EPS5 battery pack).
The device is easy to handle, and the buttons are easy to press even if you are wearing gloves.
When turning the device off, you just simply hold the on/off button until the screen turns black.
