The Bering Optics PRODIGY Mini Thermal Monocular is the most affordable thermal viewing device in the Prodigy family of products. With the objective lens diameter of 13 millimeters and near feather-light 370 grams, this is their smallest unit yet. Thanks to the compact build PRODIGY Mini is sure to fit into every pocket, while the rugged and rubberized housing is sturdy enough to withstand the harsh natural elements. The body of the device is water and dustproof, with an extra comfortable eyecup design.

All functions of the PRODIGY Mini thermal monocular can be operated by the four control buttons on top of the device that are ergonomic enough for a single-hand operation with gloves on. The main functions of the device, such as zoom, brightness and image polarity mode, are easy to operate by just engaging the four control buttons which have tactical buttons for use in pitch-black situations. The PRODIGY Mini uses a specially engineered LWIR (8-14µm) sensitive thermal core. This automatic shatter-based core is able to detect the heat of observed objects up to 400 m away, no matter the weather and terrain conditions. In addition to its stealth appearance, the PRODIGY Mini features the longest battery life (up to 15 hours) of any thermal monocular on the market.
