While HEXEUM isn't a brand that springs to mind when you think of high-quality optics, we couldn't resist sharing this great Black Friday deal. We have seen this deal before during Amazon Prime Day but with a saving of 53% we had to share its Black Friday discount, too.
The normal price of the Hexeum night vision binoculars of $298 is now down to just $139.98. Based on the previous pricing data, the real-terms saving is probably more like $70-$100. Still, that's not to be sniffed at.
The night vision binoculars feature a CMOS sensor for viewing up to 3x magnification and a 4x digital zoom. The aperture is 24mm they boast a 10-degree angle of view.

We haven't yet accomplished a hands-on review of this particular model, so we can't 100% guarantee the quality of the image at 1300ft. Neither can we confirm claims of edge-to-edge resolution or outstanding image quality. However, we can see numerous impressive specs, and we think it's worth the risk when sitting at this price.
The bulk of the 1026 customer reviews are positive, with many users claiming they were surprised at how good they are for the price. We think we'll be buying a pair and giving them a hands-on review shortly to see if we can add them to our best night vision binoculars buying guide.
Notable features include fully multi-coated optics to increase light transmission and decrease glare, HD image and video recording, which saves to a 32GB SD card (included). Also, long continuous runtime of eight hours with adjustable IR or 17 hours without IR. They will work in the daytime as well as at night.
They are rated IP66, implying they can take a good beating by the elements. You could happily take them out in rough seas, although they can't be completely submerged in water, so if you use them in such conditions, attach the included neckstrap!
The HEXEUM night vision goggles are almost identical in weight to the much more expensive Dorr Night Owl NOB5X and ATN Binox 4K. These models feature on our best night vision binoculars list (The ATN Binox 4K currently has a $68 discount at Adorama).
Remember to purchase 6 x AA batteries so you can get up and running straight away; unfortunately, they don't take rechargeable batteries. Try and find a deal on batteries like this, too.
In the bundle, you will receive 1 x Night Vision Goggles, 1 x bag, 1 x neck strap, 1 x 32GB SD Card, 1 x Data Cable, 1 x User Manual and a cleaning cloth.
