The frequency of transmitting the photos has been my biggest battery drainer. During the rut I have them transmitting every single time an event is triggered and the batteries wear out significantly faster. Off season I have them transmitting only twice per day and seems like the batteries will last forever in this configurationIn addition to that Andy, they are simply looking at the wattage draw they measured for taking pictures, night and day, and then calculating how long the lithium batteries would sustain that draw over time. As we all know, batteries don't always follow exact rules for draw over time. Weather and many other factors can effect their lifespan
Agree.The frequency of transmitting the photos has been my biggest battery drainer.
HAha i have the exact same routine. My wife knows exactly what I am doing every morning and evening. Favorite times of the day.Agree.
If you transmit with each triggering event, you greatly reduce battery life, and/or increase how often you must install new batteries.
The biggest battery drainer is nighttime pics using a flash.
Both during the season and during the off-season (deer season)
I typically remotely change my cell cam settings twice daily, reducing how many nightime pics are taken compared to daytime pics.
My daily routine begins each morning drinking coffee, review the past night's cell cam pics, changing the cam settings. Daily routine ends each night reviewing the most recent pics, changing the cam settings.
That quality is amazing. I am not holding out for this kind of quality with the delta but ya never know.Check out these videos (with great audio) from a Ridgetec. Click link below, then click videos on the upper right. A raccoon video and few turkey videos.
