Hi

You will never find an exact number for battery life on any NV, simply because there are too many variables involved. Most gen 1 units are rated at 10-20 hours, depending on how much you use the IR, air temp (cold weather drains batteries much quicker) and so on, but 10-20 hours is a good ball park figure and place to start. Given the low cost of the typical CR123 used in an NV, just carry extras.

It has two batteries, does that matter or does it usually make a difference?

Thanks =D

Hi

You are very welcome.

No, will not make a significant difference - that's what most Gen 1s use.
