How to distinguish between handheld and telescope laser rangefinders


When many people come into contact with a handheld laser rangefinder and a portable laser rangefinder at one time, they can't tell the difference between the two, and then they yell at each other. Today, I will explain the difference between the two rangefinders

If you can tell from the name that one is a handheld and the other is a telescope, the telescope is understandable, but basically every laser rangefinder is handheld, huh, is there no difference?

it's actually really easy. We only need to look at the physical map for comparison, and we can see it from the appearance immediately. The effect is as follows.

The left side of the picture is a handheld laser rangefinder, and the right side is a telescope laser rangefinder.


Next, I will explain the difference between the two functional effects.

Hand-held laser rangefinder: The measuring distance is generally less than 300 meters, but the accuracy can reach 0.1 to 0.2 mm, domestically it is generally 0.2 mm, and foreign famous brands such as Bosch can reach 0.1 mm.

Hand-held laser rangefinders are mostly used for indoor measurement, because there will be a red dot pointing to the measured object during measurement, but the red dot of this laser is basically invisible outdoors, which limits the handheld laser rangefinder to only Indoor use.

But there are also high-end handhelds that can be used outdoors, but the price is more expensive, haha.

Then there is the telescope laser rangefinder. The distance measured by the telescope is about 600-2000 meters, which is far from the handheld laser rangefinder, but the accuracy is generally only plus or minus 1 meter, which is good. In many cases, it is also easily affected by the outside weather.

Binoculars are generally used outdoors, such as hunting, sightseeing, traveling, and golfing. They are all useful.
