Turning off red dot finder!!!


Recommended Posts

Anyone else keep forgetting to switch off the red dot?? :)

Just pulled the scope out to get outside and have a scan of the moon, and found my red dot finder was left on again and battery flat again...

I left it on the first night I ever used it, and following day I bought a pack of 16x batteries, and went thru all of those, and now several packs of batteries later, I only have 2 left again...

I think every single time I get the scope out I forget to turn it off.....

Anyone else get this or is it just me???? :)

yep mee too, i have te rigel, an i have left it on twice now, and am still on teh same battery.

I have ordered some more from 7 dayshop, so i will have some spares.

The problem is, when you finish, and the stuff all needs clearing away, one is knackered, and the ol' brain isnt nesc firing on all cylinders.
