Does the double battery cap for aimpoints really make a big difference? I've had trouble seeing the dot sometimes, and if the dot could be a little brighter, then I buy it. Does it reduce the life of the diode?

The double battery module only holds a spare battery in an extended cap. The battery is NOT in use; it's only stored for quick battery swaps.

Actually there is indeed a double battery holder which doubles the birghtness/life between changes.

me too lumpy... just replaced my first batt. after 14 mos., flipped it over throw out the old insert new on the other side of the double batt. holder . not because it died but it wasn't as bright in direct sunlight conditions as it used to be.
