Here are your best battery options:

Trailcampro Choice: AmpTORRENT Rechargeable AA Lithium

If the Muddy Mitigator were to take 15-day and 15-night pictures every 24 hours, this camera would last 2.2 months  in the field - per charge - on a set of AmpTorrent Rechargeable AA Lithium batteries. 

There are a number of benefits to these batteries:

  • Up to 1,200 charges
  • Consistent 1.5 volt operation
  • Charges with the included USB cable
  • Eco-friendly (less batteries in a landfill)
  • Batteries pay for themselves after 2-3 charges

Longest Lasting Choice: Energizer Ultimate Lithium

If the Muddy Mitigator were to take 15-day and 15-night pictures every 24 hours, this camera would last 3.3 months  in the field on a set of Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries. 

Ultimate Lithium batteries are the longest-lasting battery choice due to their incredible consistency and capacity. We've loved these batteries for a long time. However, in recent years they have become cost prohibitive and forced us to seek out a more affordable, eco-friendly option. 


Detection Circuit:     80/100

Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.6 s. - 58.5 s.

Video Trigger & Recovery Speed:  n/a

Detection Range & Angle: 70 ft. @ 44.4° (57.5° field of view)


Quality of Design:     81/100

Dimensions: 5 x 4 x 2 1/2

Battery Type:  8 AA

External Battery Jack: 12 V

Case Design

  The Muddy Matrix feels like a camera in the $100 price range. However, the latch operates easily, but feels as it could be broken. The battery compartment seems to hold the batteries really well. We like that the antenna port comes off the side of the camera (and not the top) as this can help keep moisture from pooling at this entry port. The antenna on the unit is very light. This will blend in well with a darker color of design.
