AIMPOINT claims you can put the brightness on 7 out of 10, and it will run for 50,000 hours. That is 5 years. If that was true, why would anyone ever turn it off?

Is it true?

You will have to ask again in 5 years. It should be true, I have run second generation Aimpoints for months with no issues and other long lasting red dots like the Dr Optic run for years so I see no reason the Aimpoint would not do the same. In actuality it never really turns off either. The off setting is just a very low level on setting.

Yes it's true.

Like what DevL said, there is no off switch position, the off setting is just a very low level on setting.

I only have an older M2 model and I'm not complaining about the 10,000 hrs/ 1+ year of daytime operation on a set of batteries.
