The Sightmark Element runs on both solar and battery power.

Sightmark continues to innovate its optics line with the release of the Element Mini Solar red dot. The 1x28mm Element combines solar cell technology with additional battery power to deliver a 3-MOA red dot in virtually any lighting condition.

In January we reported on the Volta Solar Reflex Sight, which similarly combines solar cell and battery power. Now Sightmark releases a red dot variant as well, running off a single CR2032 battery or solar power. If the battery completely dies, its Dual Power technology allows the sight to run solely off solar power. The innovative Eclipse Light Management System features auto brightness, tuning the red dot reticle brightness to the best setting for available light.

Sightmark says the Element runs on everything from MSR platforms to tactical shotguns. The optic includes an absolute co-witness mount with adjustable height, protective adjustment caps that double as tools for making windage/elevation adjustments, manual digital switch brightness controls and a user-friendly hinged battery door. This battery door design helps prevent losing parts when changing out the battery. The Element comes with a low Picatinny mount and a lifetime warranty.

The Sightmark Element retails for $199. For more information, visit
