    Default Long Battery Life - Red Dots

    Any other recommendations for a red dot with a 10,000+ hour battery life besides aimpoint or trijicon?

    Primary arms dots are pretty decent. Cant beat the price.

    I researched that very question a while back and couldn't find anything other than the two you mentioned.

    This is pretty much your best option if you don?t want to invest in something from Aimpoint or Trijicon.

    You can probably catch one of the PA units on sale this time of year for around $150 or less.

    People say nothing is impossible but I do nothing every day.

    New Holosun is supposed to be close to those numbers, but not sure of quality....

    Subscribed, pondering a day bright rds for a cheap project.

    SIG Romeo series also claim some extraordinary battery life spans...and I've seen them pretty reasonable over the last few weeks...

    My Holosun 510c elite claims up to 20k hours on full reticle (circle dot). With the auto off and shake awake, paired with the solar, I would bet it lasts a very long time.
