Battery Life: 55/100

Picture & Video Resting Power (on): 3.77 mW

Picture Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption: 1.38 Ws | 4.82 Ws

Video Daytime/Nighttime Power Consumption: 32.16 Ws | 271.35 Ws

Battery life is efficient in picture mode but extremely inefficient in video mode.

Picture Mode

If this camera were to take 35-day and 35-night pictures every 24 hours, the Wildgame Mirage 14 would last 6.6 months in the field on a set of 8 AA Lithium Batteries. We consider this to be good battery life.

Video Mode

If this camera were to take 15-day and 15-night videos (30-second videos / this is the only length of video Wildgame allows) every 24 hours, it would last 0.7 months in the field on a set of lithium batteries. This is very poor.

Detection Circuit: 65/100

Picture Trigger & Recovery Speed: 0.49 s. / 7.2 s.

Video Trigger & Recovery Speed: 1.79 s. / 7.6 s.

Detection Range: 80 ft

Trigger speed in picture mode is fast, but picture recovery, video trigger, and video recovery are all slow.

Detection range was 80 feet in our Detection Shootout. This is an excellent detection range.

Overall, the detection circuit would be good if not for the poor recovery times. The slow recovery times really drag down the overall speed and productivity of the detection capabilities.
