The two main features of this night vision binoculars are the Built-in powerful Pulse IR system infrared illuminator and the Eclipse protective lens cover that are responsible for its day and night viewing capabilities.
IR illuminators are basically responsible for providing invisible infrared light to provide visibility in complete darkness. While most IR illuminators drain batteries, this device utilizes pulsing IR system so that it minimizes battery drainage preventing the tube from burning out while providing quick infrared energy burst that can penetrate longer distances. For brighter and clearer night viewing, it is always best to go for night vision devices that have a built-in IR illuminator.
While regular night vision binoculars can only be used at night or in low-light conditions, this device can be used in daylight or extreme light conditions because of its Eclipse protective lens caps. The lens caps have pin holes that limit the amount of light that can come in that prevents the tube from burning out. Furthermore, the covers can be flipped up or rotated out of the viewing area easily for convenience.
Aside from these day and night features, it is important to highlight the viewing range that this device can cover. Basically, the Yukon Tracker 2x24 Night Vision Binocular has the longest viewing range on our list which is 200 yards, a wide field of view, and a Dual eye diopter adjustments with central focusing knob that provides flexibility no matter what grade of vision you have on your left and right eye, you can still get a good image because the Dual eye diopter allows you to adjust the lenses to your vision.
The Yukon 2x24 Night Vision Binocular is portable because it is lightweight and has a small size so you can easily find a place for it when you go on a trip. Because of its rubberized body armor protection, the device:
- will not easily slip off your hands while you use it in extreme situations
- will not easily get damaged, scratched, or broken if dropped because of its durability
- is weather and fog resistant
You could use the device comfortably for long hours without hurting the area around your eyes because it has a soft rubber eyecup. It also conceals the light in front of your eyes so you can observe at night without getting detected.
Finally, it includes a good-looking protective carrying case and neck strap which are a major plus since most inexpensive night vision binoculars do not usually include the accessories.
