    What's the best batteries yall have found for trail cam use?? The stock ones lasted a couple months,then these stupid energizers only lasted about 3 weeks.....2 sets of energizers,.first set lasted a week and a half..........3 weeks for the 2nd set. I gotta find some that are good for cold weather and all.

    that was my biggest thing when shopping for a trail cam, needed smaller batteries. I had one camera that took I think 8 D cell batteries..forget that.

    I've been looking at external 12 volt power supply for my cams. I might have a line on some gell cells that should work well.

    One place you can check for more battery info is http://www.chasingame.com/forum/index.php

    Unfourtinately, if your going to run your camera 24/7, theres nothing going to help with the D battery.

    I put my camera out in september, and its still going strong, with around 1,100 pics every 2 weeks. Lithium batteries FTW. Can you exchange your camera for something that takes smaller ones?
