Who knows anything about the Skypoint Micro-LTE-S cellular camera with built in solar panel and having the lithium power pack? Are they decent; price wise they normally go new for between $169-$199 but I can pick up new in box for $120++ right now. Wondering how they are for picking up cellular service signal and picture and trigger speed quality. Think the best strength of service in SW Young county is Verizon and ATT. Thanks for any known input.

I have 6 spypoint cameras, 3 that are still working. One of the non-working ones was replaced under warranty, and stopped working in about a week. Once they are all dead (I don't expect it to be long) I am going with a different brand. Lots of bad reviews for spypoint. I wish I had listened to them before buying.

For what it's worth, they were great for one year.

In a long list of crappy Cellular cameras, they are at the very bottom, not many levels to the top either.

I have an original Ridgetec before the dual, I would love to have a dozen of those versus anything on the market currently.

Haven't had problems with them. Keep good batteries and for me they just work. Also recently dealt with their customer service and was pleased.

Any experience with the Lithium battery power pack and built in solar panel model?

I've been needing to upgrade to that accessory. I know Lithiums are the way to go. I think the units also have a regular plug in type receptacle for attaching your own solar panel but don't quote me on that. Not sure thought because 8 double AAs is going to be 9.6 volts. Never seen a 9.6 volt solar panel.

The input is 12v and 8AA x 1.5v is 12v, not 9.6v

Oh yeah that sounds more like it. Not sure where I got that 9.6 volts. 12 volts makes it easy to find a solar charger for these cams.

Saved about $60 after price match and additional 5% discount + another 5% off for Academy card per camera on 3 of them for Verizon network. At $124 ea. out the door instead of $180-$184 non-discounted willing to give it a try. Boss uses the non-solar version and loves them. He'll be getting 2 of these and 1 for me.

To me they have been good cameras specially at the price point.
