Brand new Energizer lithium battery.  Am I missing a switch or setting somewhere?

I bought it from TNVC years ago, used it for a while with no problems.  I store it with the battery removed.

Cover up the connections where the j-arm meets the monocular with electrical tape or similar.
Or get a j-arm that doesn't have the electrical contacts on it.

Is it doing it only when helmet mounted or is it doing it handheld too?

I played around with it a bit more.

Handheld (but still in the Norotos NVG) it shuts off after a minute.  Pointing the objective towards the ground didn't do anything.

When I affix the mount to the helmet and lower the tube it stays on.

Seems I was not aware that there's a circuit that turns the unit off after a while when it's not mounted.

I didn't test it by swinging the tube up, but I suspect it will shut it off if I do that - which makes sense.

Thanks all for the tips.
