Hello everyone:
 I have a Kahles K624i rifle scope, and when turning up the reticle ilumination, I have observed the following:
  As you know, K624i´s have a rheostat, with no detents, and no deffined brightness levels.  But in mine, when I first turn it on, I can see that, in the lowest intensity levels, there a total of three jumps in intensity, and the rheostat reacts as knobs with detents do, but from that point, it begins to act the expected way, that´s it, brightness begins to increase in a constant, smooth way, with no jumps in intensity at all.   Sorry for my english, and I hope you catch the meaning of what I try to explain.
  I would like to ask to someone who owns a k624I,  if it happens the same in his-her scope.
 

           Greetings from Pedro-Rapaz (Spain)

In other words, at the lowest intensity levels, the knob behaves the same way as if it were one with click detents, with three different intensity levels, but once your reach the third intensity level, brightness increases in a constat, smooth way, as expected from a rheostat controlled ilumination reticle.
   If someone who owns a K624i coulp please make me the favor of cheking it out, I would really thank him.

          Greetings from Spain

Will check mine when I can and get back to you. Do you know what generation scope you have? They may have made changes over the past few years/generations.

Hello:
  Mine is third generation, from 2015; the one with no detents on the parallax wheel.

I have a K 624i CC 6-24X56 Abs. MSR from 2015.  I believe the product number is "10540" if I am reading the box correctly.   Mine turns on with an initial pulse of light (like the electronics are warming up; or...an electrical overvoltage). Then it immediately dims to almost unobservable levels in under a second (i.e. really fast).  From that point onwards, as I rotate the knob, it behaves exactly like a smooth rheostat.  The brightness increases smoothly with no pulses or 'artificial detents' in brightness.
