Hi spikeyb, we had trouble when we first started to use cameras,we now use batteries with a minimum of 2850 Nimh and we don’t put the video on for any longer than 10 secs,as anything over that really cooks the batteries.
All depends on how many visits you have a night to how long they last,on a normal night with 30 or 40 visits to the feeding station they will last 3 nights,we’ve bought double the amount so one lot in the camera,one lot charging.Hope this helps.
