    Well, $h1+ - that makes my life easier. SRO it is! I like the idea of the enclosed emitter, but, even 30 days of battery life isn't gonna cut it for a serious use optic...

    How long had it been since you last checked it? 30 days or somewhere in between then and now?

    My eight day deal may not be unique after all although I was hoping it was.

    Anyone tested SRO life yet on the highest setting/worst case scenario?

    Ideally Trijicon used the well-established guts of the RMR but it could just as easily be something entirely new all the way around.

    It has been probably a week since I looked at this Acro, so I don’t know. A month, one or two clicks down from max, maybe even less, is my best estimate of how long this Acro went.

    This is very discouraging. I had very high hopes for ACRO due to the closed emitter, but this level of battery performance isn’t going to cut it.

    I have been an extremely satisfied Aimpoint user for years, and have a few dozen or more of them, but this is not going to cut it for this product. I hope there is something about my unit, my battery, or something else I am missing, but if this is SOP for the Acro, I predict it is a total fail for LE/EDC. Also, changing the battery is a total PITA compared to the DP Pro. With the Acro, you need to be careful to use the right size flat blade to not bugger it up, the cap is small, the battery needs to be pried out, then you need to be careful not to cross thread it putting the cap back on. A battery change on the Acro is not something you want to do in a hurry or in low light or adverse conditions.

    From what I recall of Aimpoint's literature the ACRO will run over a year on the middle setting. Can there really be that much additional draw going up a few clicks in brightness?

    Middle setting is not what I need to use this optic. I leave mine one click down from max for an all condition usable dot.

    Good reminder, that regardless of company, be cautious when beta testing a new product. Their roll out and battery issues is going to kill this optic

    Or, they will cause Aimpoint to make product improvements. I still hope ACRO works out, I just wonder if it’s not soup yet.
