I don’t have the camera on all night – at the moment, I’ve set it to come on at 8pm until 3.30am

because otherwise, I’ll just get loads of videos of cats and not hedgehogs.

The hedgehogs don’t arrive until after 9pm and don’t seem to come after 3am

so I thought, to save a bit of battery, I won’t have it on all night.

I am thinking about getting rechargeable, are they ok in cold temperatures?

I’ve heard that lithium batteries are best for cold temps – but they are very pricey in comparison to alkaline.

I’m just worried, if I buy rechargeable (which are quite pricey) the cold might damage them, however, it’s definitely something I’m currently thinking about.
