1.) What is the battery life of the TL35
Dual internal batteries means users can expect 10+ hours of run time with the TL35
2.) What are proper batteries for the MH25?
The TL35 has a battery port for an additional 18500 or 18650 battery to extend its run time.
3.) What is included with the RH25?
The TL35 includes two rings/bases for mounting, power cable, user manual and soft case.
4.) How much better is 640 vs 320 or 384 core?
We typically only recommend 640×480 or better cores. The image clarity and quality is substantially better than a 320 or 384 core. With that being said, if your budget doesn’t allow the price tag of a 640 core, lower resolution may be the only option. You can get a lot of work done with lower resolution, but when it comes to helmet mounting, 640×480 is the way. We will say this: iRay has done a fantastic job with their 384 core thermal units. We have been blown away by the clarity. It won’t be as crisp as a 640×480 or 640×512, but it is definitely capable.
5.) What about a warranty?
Contact iRay after purchase to register for their warranty. If there is ever an issue, we would be happy to assist. Ultimately, if a unit is defective, iRay will handle the replacement. However, part of us doing right by our customers is helping any way we can. If you experience issues, email us at CS@Arkayne.com.
6.) Is the TL35 able to be helmet mounted or used as a handheld?
Negative on the helmet mounting. Technically it “could” be used as a handheld, but this is a dedicated weapon mounted thermal. If helmet or handheld thermal is desired, check out the other options on our website.
7.) Does the TL35 feature internal recording?
Yes, the TL35 can record videos or photos internally. The files can be easily transferred by plugging the unit into your computer.
9.) What is the best base magnification of a thermal scope?
We tend to prefer lower magnifications for our terrain. That being said, anything 1-4X base magnification will suffice for most folks. Any higher and it gets harder to scan larger areas. If you already have helmet mounted thermal, this is a non-issue as you will scan with that. Remember: the base magnification will be the clearest magnification. Everything higher is digital. We like using the base magnification and PIP mode when shooting prey.
