1.) What is the battery life of the RH25
The advertised battery life of the RH25 is 4 hours. This would be a large improvement over the MH25. As you might recall, the battery life of the MH25 was its biggest pitfall in our experiences. The RH25 uses 18650 batteries which are very common to find and purchase.
2.) What are proper batteries for the MH25?
Included with this unit are (2) rechargeable 18650 batteries. Please note specifications on the included 18650 batteries. Any replacements purchased must meet the specifications of the batteries included from factory from iRay.
3.) What is included with the RH25?
The RH25 includes (2) 18650 batteries, rail adapter, weapon mount, eye cup, chargers, and various cables for charging, data transfer, etc.
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.
6.) Is a helmet mount included in the price above?
No. You will need to purchase a helmet mount separately. Please see our web page discussing the panobridge to learn more about how to mount an RH25 to your helmet.
7.) Can the RH25 be run on the Panobridge or Mod Armory Bridge along with a PVS14?
Yes. You will need to purchase the panobridge or mod armory bridge separately. You can find the panobridge HERE and the Mod Armory Bridge HERE. We typically have found better performance from the mod armory bridge when running with a PVS14. Please read all details on the mod armory bridge product page on our site as mounting thermal monoculars to a helmet can have some quirks and special considerations.
The RH25 is packaged by iRay and includes batteries, a charger, cables as well as a soft carry case. We will shoot a full video showing all of the components inside of the kit.
Please NOTE: The RH25 does NOT come with the dovetail/picatinny adapter OR rail adapter standard. Please make sure you select both options should you want to helmet and/or weapon mount your unit. We HIGHLY recommend buying both while purchasing your RH25 thermal monocular.
