AuraWake is our patent-pending take on a safer implementation of shake-to-wake designs seen in the industry today.

Many optics will auto shut off after a set number of hours to conserve runtime. Accelerometers (small motion sensing devices) are commonly utilized in optics to activate them once the weapon is picked up. However, these devices may exhibit unreliability after heavy impact testing, and is why we initially decided against general shake-to-wake in the LP-1. However, we are now proud to announce AuraWake, our new partial shake-to-wake system that ties the accelerometer ONLY to the 65 MOA ring!

Simply put, after 5 minutes of non use, the LP-1’s outer CQB ring will “sleep,” yet maintain the 2MOA dot on at all times. This provides a constant, action-ready aiming reference that cannot be interfered with upon accelerometer failure, while significantly increasing runtime! It’s the best of both worlds, and is available for purchase now.
