    With brand new batteries, the battery life is only a few minutes. I didn't notice mine getting hot, but there is obviously a problem.

Bushnell holosight battery goes dead after only 20 or 30 min. Mfg. date: Feb. 2008 no. 392811


Make sure the battery you install is fresh and at full rated voltage. Even recently store bought batteries can be questionable. This will require a test meter; if you don't already have one, Tool King has battery testers for a couple bucks and digital multimeters for $10; good to have around. If this is too much of a challenge, can a friend help? Otherwise, this sounds like the battery is being shorted out. First, remove the battery and make sure the contacts are not bent, causing them to touch together. Examine the compartment it sits in for debris, corrosion, or any other contamination. If you see something, determine whether you can safely remove it without causing damage. If there is corrosion you might be able to clean it up by using a cotton swab(O-Tip) and rubbing alcohol. Otherwise, send it back to Bushnell with a description of the problem. Be as accurate as possible, including the circumstances under which it occurs. Include your name, address, and a number where you can be reached. They'll take it from there. They may call you if they have any further questions, and, if you feel the sight failed without reason(dropping it, soaking it with cleaning solution or lubricant, etc) let them know, and they may repair/replace it under warranty. Sometimes companies experience problems because of poor design, bad manufacturing or componentry that fails prematurely.

Bushnell holo sight


It will test the condition of the batteries. Turn the sight on to its brightest setting and leave it for 2-3 minutes. Then while looking at the red dot, press the battry icon button and hold it in. If the image does nothing, you are good to go. If it starts flashing, then you have less than 20% left in the batteries.
