I utilized an Aimpoint T-1 on my Noveske 10.5 CQB prior to retirement. I always left the T-1 illuminated on a "low" setting so that it was ready for immediate use when I un-assed the cruiser. I powered the sight with name-brand (Duracell or Rayovac) lithium batteries, CR2032 . Battery life was phenomenal. I changed the battery once each year during my Christmas vacation. At the time the batteries were manufactured either stateside or in Japan. Never a problem.
Then these batteries began being manufactured in China and Indonesia, according to the stamping on the battery face. I left the sight on a low-power setting just as before but began experiencing battery failure after approximately eight to ten months. Same experience with another T-1 on my 6920.
Has anyone else experienced this problem with batteries manufactured off-shore? What lithium batteries are you now utilizing? Thank-you in advance.
