Take the battery out for charging.
Get at least two good quality 18650 3400mah batteries (genuine Panasonic from Torchy the battery boy) and a Nitecore I2 charger
DO NOT buy any 18650 batteries with the word "fire" in their name - they are rubbish.

Cheers

Hi Andy.
I see you have a Pard NV 007. I shoot rabbits and rats etc with my .22 rim fire. I use a hawke map pro 4 scope.how do you rate the Pard. Is it worth buying. I don't want to spend huge money on equipment but I don't want to buy a lemon either....

Thanks

The PARD NV007 is far and away the best "bang for your buck" night vision add-on.
You do need a scope that has some sort of focus adjustment (AO or side focus) to get the best out of it.

Cheers
