trail camera battery life question

3 posts in this topic

I just picked up a Cuddeback Expert digital camera and hung it up this past weekend on Sat. For kicks I checked it late Sunday evening and the battery level was down to 2 (out of 4) using brand new Durcell D cells. Is this normal? From what the manual said it should last months not days. It also only had 10 pics on it.

TIA,

Mike

I used a Cuddeback 3.0 last year and the batteries lasted all season. If you can keep checking the camera, I would let it go until the batteries drain. If they drain in the next couple of weeks you should contact Cuddeback - I've heard they have excellent customer service. One of the benefits of the Cuddebacks is supposed to be long battery life.

Well, I went back up and checked the camera on Saturday. The batteries were completly dead in only 7 days. It had 75 pics on it. I'm currently running it in EZ mode with a 1 minute delay in LIVEmode. I'm thinking I may have a defective unit?

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
