I recently purchased a Browning Range Ops game camera and I love the pics it puts out. I use rechargeable batteries in all my cameras and feeders but for some reason even freshly charged, brand new batteries show 56% life on the camera. It's not a big deal to me because the ones in there now have been out for two weeks and captured well over 100 pics and still show 56%. However, I would like to put a solar charger on it. Since I am in no way electrically inclined, can someone tell me how big of a solar panel I would need or better yet, recommend one to me? Before next season I plan on picking up a couple more of these cameras and panels so I would really like to make sure I get it right the first time. Thanks!!

You might be better off picking up a power pack. They are external batteries that you pre-charge and that lets you tap into that juice while you're out. I have one for my phone. Maybe slighlty larger than a deck of cards and holds 3x what the phone does.

Solar is still pretty slow and anything you can carry around with you will be limited.

If you go the the mfg. web site I bet you could find the recommended charger, usually just a plug in. Have to know what voltage needed. Some solar panels have different end plugs that come with them.
