The lighter in weight they make it, the more batteries you have to hump.
Even the thermal sights the military uses burn through batteries pretty quick. The sensors have to be kept pretty cold to work.The Command Launch Unit (CLU) for the Javelin missile, which uses a thermal sight, runs about 4 hours.The Light Weight Thermal Sight (LWTS) version of the AN/PAS-13 runs on 4 AAs and lasts about 5 hours. There are heavier versions (Medium and Heavy) that run on 6 lithium AAs for about 6.5 hours.So 5 hours for a civvy thermal would seem about right.
