Upon activation Picture in Picture function displays second small image with magnification in the top part of the screen. Small image helps to zoom in on a target while retaining the rest of the field of view visible. IPX7 waterproof-rated for protection from heavy rainfall, snow, or other precipitation. The Axion Key is designed to run flawlessly, even after submersion in up to 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Miniature power elements used in Axion Key models provide sufficient operation time and can be quickly replaced. B-Pack mini batteries can be quickly charged either with included charger station or in the unit connected to USB.

The Pulsar AXION KEY is designed for use both at night-time and during the day in difficult weather conditions (fog, smog, rain), as well as where obstacles are present that impede the detection of a target (branches, tall grass, dense shrubs etc.), for night-time hunting, observation, and terrain orientation, and carrying out rescue operations.
