Hello,

I recently bought a Spypoint Micro LTE camera for one of my stands and have heard that the battery life is typical not good. Does anyone have any recommendations on what they use to combat this? I saw they sell a 12V rechargeable battery kit for $60 but wanted to know if anyone else has a different solution. Thank y'all

I have both the standard and solar versions. With the standard camera, I got 3-4 months on lithium batteries in an area that had good cell coverage. I moved the same camera to an area with spotty coverage and it burned through set of new batteries in one day. I swapped out to the solar version with an antenna on a tall pole and it has been solid for a month.

I, too grabbed one of those SpyPoint cameras last month when Academy had 'em on sale. First set of AAs lasted about two weeks and sent almost 200 pictures. Since I've been using all sorts of game cameras and feeder mechanisms for decades, I had a few spare parts to work with (the 12v socket on the camera is pretty common) and came up with my own solar 12 volt system.

I purchase the 12 volt rechargers for my cameras. Cost 60 unless on sale by the time I buy a battery and solar charger I’m only saving a few bucks on a DIY.

I have the solar charger, works well. Charges to 100%. May need to trim a bit of the plastic around the plug in to camera for a good fit. I had problems with the plug falling out. Otherwise I’ve been happy with it. I just get crappy reception with where I’m at, so may be get 1 or 2 transmissions a day.
