It runs for 10 hrs with BT and WiFi both On, turn them off and it runs for 14 hrs.

It’s basically three 18650s in parallel.

Looks like the on board battery pack is available, who’s going first?

I just pulled the trigger.  Back ordered until 5/6.  Hope it works as well as I think it will!

So I just got off the phone with a FLIR service rep on another issue. I asked about the Scion battery pack. . He said that they do not have a firm ship date and May 6 May might slide. They still haven’t received the battery packs from their subcontractor.   Hope it’s not a long wait...

Kind of figured, glad I didn’t get my hopes up to much...

FLIR's website now shows the Scion battery pack with an expected ship date of 5/20.  Bummed.  The 3.2V RCR123A that I'm using last a little less than 3 hours.  I'm looking forward to the 10 hour life so I can complete a hunt without a battery change.

So a couple more weeks?  Better late than never I suppose...

ETA - just got notification - delayed until 7/6/20.  Maybe it'll get here before first of November

I actually got 2 notices yesterday.  The first one at 1114 said shipping May 25.  The second one at 1116 said July 6.  I'll try to be patient, but if it's not in my hand and performing as I expect by August I'm not going to be happy.  I bought the device with a promise of a battery pack "right around the corner".  That was in March.  There's hogs to kill, and 3.2V RCR123A don't have a good field life. Primary CR-123's at 6 per 4 hours get expensive real quick.  A FLIR CS rep (who didn't sound particularly technically knowledgeable) recommended against 3.7V 16340's due to the potential voltage spike.  I'm chicken with a brand new device, and the FLIR battery pack is supposed to have additional protections for the encased 18650's.  So I (im)patiently wait.
