I've got a couple of cheapo Wildviews with the external 12 volt jack so I rigged up a piggy back connection and hooked it to my truck battery just to test. It worked like a champ.
I'm thinking about getting riding lawn mower batteries and putting them in old metal ammo boxes for actual use in the field. I can get a decent sized battery for about $20 bucks at Fleetfarm. Should last the entire year I'd think. :darkbeer:
I use to use them and still have a couple that I still use but most the cams i have now are Bushnell Trophy cams and they go a long long time on 8 AA batteries. There have been some that were out for 5+ months and the batteries were still good.. Randy
I called Moultrie about the 12v solar panel/battery charger and she said I had to use (6) rechargeable batteries and the 12v solar panel changes the voltage to 9 volts - makes sense to me. The solar panel just recharges the batteries, doesn't actually run the camera.
