Kite 16 x 42 APC Binoculars

The innovative APC 42 redefines your experience in nature observation. Just as light and just as bright as conventional 42mm roof prism binoculars, but stable. And not the kind of stability you may have experienced before… but an entirely new level of stability. Observe in the strongest winds, Observe as long as you like. See details as if you are watching a film. Start watching while you are still out of breath from that long walk, and enjoy highest magnifications without the slightest image vibration. But most important of all… Let yourself be amazed by the things you see, that are invisible with even the best standard binoculars.

The APC 42 binocular has 2 battery boxes. Each battery box holds 2 standard AA bateries. One battery box contains 2 functional AA batteries that will run for 60 hours. The other box containes 2 spare AA batteries. After the first 60 hours, simply switch be batteries and continue for another 60 hours. Intelligent features such as the KITE APC system (angle power control) will put the stabilizing electronics in sleep mode when the instrument is in rest position (hanging from the neck) , and automatically activate the unit when you start observing again. This results in a huge increase of battery life and usage comfort. And regardless of its position (rest or active), after 90 mintues the instrument will automatically switch off for energy saving
