The Always Up To Date 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.

Trail Camera Battery Life

The below results are the game cameras we have done in 2020. Here is how we calculate battery life...

Battery life is calculated with our propriety formula which accounts for resting power draw + daytime power consumption + nighttime power consumption. This is done for pictures and videos.

Picture Battery Life

This calculation accounts for taking 35-day and 35-night pictures every 24 hours. For cellular cameras, we make it 15-day and 15-night pictures.

Video Battery Life

This calculation accounts for taking 15-day and 15-night videos every 24 hours. Each video is 10 seconds long.
