Default Game Camera Batteries

I thought I saw a thread about Game Camera Batteries here but can't find it for the life of me . It seems the thread " called out " one particular brand people were having bad luck with . It's time to replace batteries for me and I wanted to avoid the ones users had bad luck with . Thanks

I recommend Energizer lithium AA’s. I just changed a set that had sent 7700 pictures from my Spartan cell cam.

Energizer Lithium. They last a month at the ranch. Everything else lasts about a week and half.

Lithium’s mentioned above by far the best.

Buy a Reaktor solar panel (or similar) with built in battery pack and never have to replace your batteries again!

Otherwise, I would use the Energizer lithium.

We use Energizer Max alkaline. The ones that were mentioned in the other thread that were giving people trouble was Duracell.

We change out Amazon batteries every time we fill the feeders. It takes a little longer but we had zero camera issues running 12 cameras this year.

Right ! I use the Energizer batts in my regular cameras, they last a looong time ! I have had Duracells before but won’t use them now. The lithiums are great for cell cams but I use a solar panel and external batt on mine.
