Thread: Acro battery life thread

  1. #291
    Hi everyone and sorry to bring up a old thread, but I just received my Aimpoint ACRO through work today and directly from Aimpoint (Shipped from them on 12/31/19). I just installed the Ventra battery tonight at 8:00 pm AZ time and right now it is on level 6. I am going to sight it in tomorrow and will let you know when it is time to change the battery and what kind of numbers I have been running it on.

    I appreciate the willingness to test it and share the information. Question is, though, what level 6 brightness is good for. Based on my readings, very few people, if anyone, find that level useful. From what I've read, people run it anywhere from 7 to 10.

    “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

    Setting 6 would be useful in my house at night with the lights off. But other than that I get nothing on that setting. Turn on a light, no dot. Use a WML, no dot.

    I'm sure people with better eyes than mine (I have trouble seeing red lasers in daylight, too) can use it, but not me.

    I am about a week into a test of a “new” Acro. Instead of turning it on to a fixed setting, and waiting for it to die, I am just going to use it as a carry gun, turning intensity up and down based on conditions, sometimes off it not carrying it that day, and see how long until the battery dies. I have good BUIS on this 19 and a TLR-8, so I have alternative sighting methods.

    If Tom carries on with the T-hat adapter I will have to make him listen to me about contact methods.

    Slight veer but needing additional 2032’s for my SRO’s & Jody posted recently about Renata’s he source’s from Amazon.

    Any other input on brands to use or stay away from & thoughts about the dates posted by some manufacturers on the batts. packaging?

    Talked to a couple of Aimpoint reps last night: they said Aimpoint is revamping the ACRO to take 2032 batteries, and expect the new models to come out this summer/fall.
