2016 Battery Consumption Test For Trail Cameras

     It's extremely difficult to estimate trail camera battery life.  Variables include number of pictures taken, percentage of day to night photos, temperature and power consumption characteristics unique to each camera.

     Even if you're not a "technical wizard," these numbers indicate how well each model compares relative to industry peers.

     Additionally, we use these precise measurements to extrapolate the anticipated months of battery life in a scenario where each non-cellular game camera takes a set number (35) of day and night photos - every 24 hours, on a set of Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries.  We use the same calculation for cellular game cameras, except the set number of day and night photos is 15 each.

    
We use a Keithley 2110 5/12 Digital Multimeter sampling 32 readings per second



      We strive to deliver the highest quality and most accurate data.  We will continue to push the envelope to ensure that we are representing all the trail cameras as accurately as possible.
