The AGM Taipan thermal monoculars have become synonymous with two words: Reliability and Simplicity. The Taipan TM10-256 and Taipan TM15-256 are the great mid-level thermal monoculars for anyone wanting to experience the capabilities of thermal imaging. Equipped with a highly advanced 12 micron 256x192 resolution thermal sensor and a 720x540 LCOS display, it’s a great tool for hunters, campers and general outdoors enthusiasts who want or need to detect the presence of other animals or people in complete darkness. The range of uses include blood-tracking for hunters which aids in game retrieval, enhancing safety and awareness for hikers and camp sites and general nighttime curiosity. The Taipan still comes equipped with many of the most popular software features that experienced thermal users have come desire: up to 8 hours of battery life from an internal rechargeable battery, Wi-Fi hotspot, AGM Connect app compatibility for exporting and sharing images and videos, 8X digital zoom, and 8GB of internal storage with no need for a memory card.
