The last couple years I have been having terrible luck and keep getting comments from the manufacturers that they don't recommend using the rechargeable batteries any more.
What batteries are you guys having good luck with at a reasonable price? Any deals out there? I am using Browning and Bushnell cameras if it matters.
Expensive but they last 4-6 months through a MN winter taking 25-60 pics a day.
Something that many folks don't think about with battery usage is how much power your cam uses when it's "resting". Some cams draw less power when resting than other cams. I "think" it was the Moultries that have a low power draw when resting. Don't know about the Brownings.
My Brownings aren’t bad and change batteries two to three times a year.
It’s hard to tell with my Moultrie Cell camera that I’m trying out. That one is on a food plot and gets upwards of 1500 photos a month that and it’s powering a modem.
I’ve never sat down to figure which is more cost effective between the alkaline and lithium batteries but typically I go with the alkaline as they are frequently on sale and the lithium not so much.
