That is a really nifty setup and cheap enough that you can have two without breaking the bank. Always good to have a spare...in case you forget to recharge.

You might want to post a warning that you have language that isn't appropriate for work/family.

I love my PTS233 TVNC makes a external battery setup for it I used it a couple times hunting. Idk if Iím just too hard on it or what, but I almost broke the 90 degree usb c off in my thermal. Quit using it and stick with CR123s. Makes it a much more compact and smaller unit with internal batteries anyways.

I have the TNVC battery pack, mount, and extra 90 degree cable if anyone is interested in it.

Thatt is cool
I use thr TNVC with my PTS233
I didnt like it mounted thr way they suggest, seems too in the way and prone to get hit.
Mine is run upside down so it is much lower profile.
I ran a loop of black electrical tape around so the battery doesnt come out of contact during recoil.
Works great and I take it off and use for a handheld
i also have the DLOC qd mount whixh I really like.

How long does the battery last?


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

Okay, charged the battery fully today on my setup with a FLIR PTS736 using hetman's battery hack. Test started at 5:00 PM CST. Scope is up and running. I will NUC it every so often during the course of the evening. We will see how long it goes.

I started this same test yesterday, but fell asleep before the test ended and had drained everything to zero.

5:00 PM Start Time
6:30 PM Still running just fine

3 Hours so far today, for a total of 9 hours on one charge of hetman's battery hack. The battery shows 2 of 3 charge lights still lit, so we are on the downhill side, but 9 hours for an external setup this inexpensive is pretty darned good.

Okay, 6 hours for today as well, 1 bar still showing. So I am going to say that 12+ hours is a reasonable assessment for this battery @ 65 degress F.
