The HikMicro Habrok 4k HE25L – The New Wonderkid on the Block

HikMicro Habrok 4K- Optics Warehouse
Could this be the death of the standard optical binocular for hunting? We think so! The HikMicro Habrok 4k HE25L LRF is a game-changer for deer stalking and wildlife observation enthusiasts and we have been lucky enough to get our hands on a set. Join us as we take a closer look at the HikMicro Habrok 4k, answering questions like: what are its key features? What is the price? What is the impact on hunting and nature observation? And what are the technical specifications? Frequently Asked Questions and quickfire answers are listed towards the end of this blog along with a video review. Let's dive in...

The question posed earlier is one that has been echoing through the hunting community at Optics Warehouse and worldwide. Released in May 2024, the brand new HikMicro Habrok 4k HE25L thermal and digital LRF binocular has stormed onto the scene with its aggressive price tag and ground breaking features. Coming in at under £1200 retail, this truly staggering product comes with a 1200m laser rangefinder, a 35mk 256x192 thermal sensor and a 4k day / night CMOS sensor.

We are actually baffled at how HikMicro have been able to pack this compact device with all these features and hit a price tag that has previously been unheard of for thermal binoculars  -which has usually been north of £3000 retail.

We identified early that its primary objective is to detect heat sources within the environment and then seamlessly transition the user to use the high-resolution 4k full colour camera that gives a base magnification of 5.5x for precise identification once a target is acquired. It does this brilliantly! The added benefit of an onboard IR illuminator allows this method to happen at night making this a true crossover optic. An on board 1200m laser rangefinder then allows the shooter to clearly identify the range of their quarry so they can make the correct calculations on their rifle scope to ensure a precise shot.

Built around a robust and lightweight magnesium alloy chassis, the Habrok HE25L has a 256x192 thermal sensor and 25mm 1.0 lens that provides a similar thermal performance to the Hikmicro Lynx-S 10mm. The unit boasts a detection range of 1200m and a field of view ideal for close to mid-range observation. We found its thermal identification range, where you can accurately identify a heat source, is around 200m.

What sets this thermal marvel apart from the competition is not only its price but also its fusion of a 256x thermal sensor and a revolutionary 3840x2160 4K full colour ultra high-resolution CMOS detector that has a superb twilight performance, which we have seen the hugely popular HikMicro Alpex 4k use. The CMOS sensors ability to provide crystal clear identification of game in all light conditions is going to not only change the hunting game but also transform bird watching. It will allow the user to reveal creatures invisible to the naked eye and traditional optics by detecting their heat signatures first, and shifting the user to easily flick to the 4k sensor to identify them clearly.

Sporting a compact, lightweight magnesium alloy chassis weighing in at 795g without batteries, the Habrok 4k offers the convenience of a thermal, day/night camera, and laser rangefinder in a binocular design. Bringing together all of these devices into a convenient binocular chassis means less kit to carry when you are out on your hunt or stalk. Like all HikMicro thermal devices, the HikMicro Habrok 4k HE25L comes with an IP67 waterproof rating ensuring durability, even in the harshest weather conditions, making it the perfect companion for all outdoor adventures.

Anyone who has used traditional optical binoculars will feel instantly at home with the size and weight of the Habrok 4k and astonished by how much built-in technology is at-hand to enhance your outdoors experience. Quickly detect in thermal, view in the optical channels and record to the inbuilt memory- all on the same device and accessed with a simple click of a button.

The Habrok 4k is the binocular for the future. HIK have focused on comfort and ease of use with the HikMicro Habrok 4k by focusing on making all major controls within your fingertips as well as providing comfortable eye cups, interpupillary adjustment, and a large 1920x1080 OLED display. The Habrok 4k ensures an immersive and comfortable viewing experience.

Fuelled by the easy to obtain 2x 18650 batteries, the HikMicro Habrok 4k boasts a runtime of up to 8 hours. This means you can take your Habrok 4k binoculars on prolonged hunts without worrying about power depletion.

Finally, like all HikMicro thermal and night vision products, you can connect the HikMicro Habrok 4k to the HIKMICRO Sight app, which allows you to stream your observations to your mobile device or record videos and images to share on social channels, enhancing your hunting experience like never before.
