    I am pretty confident Aimpoint will figure it out. They are an industry leader with a reputation for making some of the best optics on the planet.

    The enclosed optic, in my opinion, is the logical path forward and I commend Aimpoint for doing this.

    We can assume Aimpoint is aware of the battery issue and that they are working on a fix.

    Yes


    According to a Aimpoint rep, the curve is not linear it is exponential. There is exponentially more draw at max brightness then say a few clicks down.




    Does anyone who knows batteries and electronics in detail know if this is due to the type of battery used?

    If anyone knows how to make a low draw RDS it is Aimpoint.

    Next thing to test then is putting in a fresh name brand battery and setting the brightness on the highest of the middle settings. Note the date. Use, shoot and enjoy the optic with the brightness left alone. See how close we get to the advertised life.

    The Acro has a small battery, and no sleep or auto adjustment feature to minimize dot intensity/battery drain when the pistol is not being fired. I will be interested to see how this plays out.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    This concerns me. Maybe my planned pistol mounted RDS experiment next year will be a Shadow MR918 with a Trijicon SRO instead of a milled OEM slide and an ACRO.

    This is very discouraging, and far from what I expected from Aimpoint after two years of development and testing. Looks like I have some things to figure out.

    FWIW, mine is still on and working after nine days, alternating between setting 7 and 8. That being said, I've not shot it since changing the battery, nor exposed it to heat outside at a match yet. It's been in a climate controlled home, vehicle, office, and warehouse.

    Well, at least the MR918 won't disappoint.

    Does anyone know if .mil tested the ACRO before socom awarded tirjicon rmr type 2 that huge contract?

    Heck, I am starting to wonder if even Aimpoint tested battery life, before releasing the product.

    Does anyone keep the dot intensity at the level where aimpoint makes their batter life claims? over the dozen or so rifle sights I've had, I'm always about 2 levels higher
