Ratings & Reviews
These are okay at best. Cheap plastic and they do not mount tightly to any of my rails. Too much slop. Great idea that is poorly executed. Would not recommend.
Great "wannabe" piece of plastic who wishes his maker had done it out of metal!!!
What is wrong with Vortex??? To make a great idea a piece of crap idea...just make it out of cheap ass plastic!!! How about next time make it like it should have been made this time...just use metal instead!!! I'm sure that people would enjoy having something like this...but not in PLASTIC!!!!
Excellent, if you understand what it is used for and how to use it
OK, understand exactly WHAT this item is for.... to provide an extra battery when you need it while minimizing weight and bulk. Polymer is fine for battery storage (actually, if you don't want to short out the battery in storage it is probably the BEST material to use) to minimize weight and bulk. A metal unit would weigh more than the battery and would require twice the bulk for a picatinny attachment. The unit fitted well to my Larue rail, so I can only wonder if another reviewer's rail was badly worn/damaged or out-of-spec. The seal on the battery container is excellent and protects the battery from moisture. The only issue I have is that the lanyard is just a bit long.
Works great for me. I mounted it to a railed top ring on my BEPR so I'd have an extra battery for my Primary Arms scope on the off chance that it dies when I'm hunting...I change my battery annually regardless, but this is cheap insurance. I've not had any issues with it being polymer. It saves weight and is better for the battery; I think it would be worse if it were metal because it'd be bulkier. Mine mounts tightly and has no slop and is plenty durable. I decided to test the seal by submerging it in a glass of water for about 5 minutes and the battery stayed dry, so it does what it's supposed to do. I did end up cutting off the lanyard because I think it's unnecessary and comically long.
