Battery life is stellar
Values based on real-world testing
Extensive battery testing of Critter Collector models is done on a regular basis. Regular copper-top alkaline batteries can last up to several weeks in certain weather conditions. In freezing temperatures, battteries do suffer drain and reduce their life in all eletronics. Freezer testing in -10 to 0 degrees will reduce battery life to 4-5 days, but this is with 24 hour constant exposure. During daylight hours and sleep time battery voltage rises dramatically extending the life closer to two weeks in the real world.
