  2. Appears to be one of the best analyzing chargers out there. https://www.amazon.com/Powerex-MH-C9000PRO-Professional-Charger-Analyzer/dp/B08DJDQ4Y8/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=maha+c9000&qid=1615045187&sr=8-3 Review: https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?386814-Test-Review-of-Analyzing-Charger-Powerex-MH-C9000 Bill

  4. They are the only batteries to use! $2.50 each here in Australia, they last many times longerthan an alkaline battery and a rechargeable. I can put a set of 8 in one of my cameras and it take 30,000 images, yes 30 thousand and last 2 years.
  5. They are AA. My wife bought them at WalMart and I don't know what she paid for them. I am going to shop around and see what I can find. Going to use them in my deer feeders and some long term deployment cameras. Bill

  7. Pretty interesting article from XTAR. Bill https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?472146-How-does-a-charger-know-Ni-MH-Ni-CD-or-Li-ion-batteries-get-fully-charged
  8. Thanks for the review. What size and best price?
  9. I have been using Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries to power a wireless thermometer in my freezers. They have been in the freezer at well below zero temps for almost 2 months now. So far the thermometers still work as they should. Don't know how they would hold up powering a camera using more power but it is still interesting. Bill
  10. Thanks to everyone. Having recently moved to Alabama I will be exploring the area looking for new areas for deploying cameras. Got spoiled on my Church Buddy's place in Oklahoma. The backbone of my fleet of cameras is still the Samsung A503 and the Sony W100. Thanks johnnydeerhunter for turning me on to the W100. Bill
  11. If you are using the Schottky diode to prevent discharging of the battery when there's no sunlight on the panel you may not need it if using a solar/charge controller.
  12. To attach files (images) at the bottom of the page next to the paper clip click on "Add Files" click on "my files" choose either "sd card" or "internal storage" choose you image provided it is no more 250kb's you can post it straight away, if not you will need to downsize.
  13. I have been out of the loop for a couple years as well. Solar systems are pretty simple in general. You need a solar panel, a Schottky diode, a charge controller, and a battery. For 18650 and 6v sla, I use 6v panels that put out 700-833mah. I forget what the watt rating of them are. I would strongly suggest using the biggest solar panel you can safely get away with hiding. That way you get maximum charge with even limited sun. And having the charge controller assures you need not worry about over charging. And remember solar panels are all but worthless if not in full sun for at least 4-
  14. Everything in general. Been out the loop for a while. Bill
  15. After getting back to this post. Are you asking about what solar panels? Or what charge controllers? Or everything in general? And what cameras and batteries are you attempting to charge?
  16. I bought a cheap solar charge controller off of ebay. For the SLA batteries. And a charge controller for 18650s as well I am about to head out of town. I will try to remeber to put a picture up next week. Works quite well as a charger as well when fed with a constant source.
  17. What is everyone using to Solar Charge their camera's batteries? Bill
  18. I will have to look into Camtrapper. I am not a member there. Thank you for the suggestion.
  19. Both or the external phone batteries I have put out 5.0 volts. Garys email for his website is out of order. Returned my email undelivered. Both the SSII & Bigfoot do run on 5v no problem. Haven’t tried the SSI yet. But neither board draws enough power to keep the external battery from shutting off. If I left the P32 powered on with the screen on, it would stay going. Until the camera shut off after a few minutes.
  20. I suggest you put this post on Camtrapper, Jeff (the admin.) will definitely have the answer.
  21. Don't know about the SS1. The bigfoot board runs off 3 x 1.5 batteries (4.5v), l have used 3 x 1.7v batteries (energizer lithium) = 5.1v and it is fine. The SS2 uses a 3.6v battery, but it can be converted to 3 x 1.5v. Mobile phone batteries that l have played around with are 3.85v. Hope this helps and as been previously mentioned Gary may see this if not you might want to send him an email.
  22. The SS1 might be an issue, I think it has a 5v regulator in it so if you have a full 5 volts to it you're probably OK but any dip or fluctuation and you could have a problem, The SS2 should be fine with the 5v. I'm not sure about the bigfoot, I think I've seen them run with 3-aa batteries, if that's the case it will be fine, if it was 4-aa's and I'm not remembering correctly then it won't. Hopefully Gary sees this and shares his wisdom.
  23. I need to know if there is dc low voltage limit switch. I want to use an external cell phone battery pack as external power to charge an 18650 in a build. The problem I am having, once the external battery gets the 18650 up to 4.2 volts, it shuts off. Which is great. Only it does not come back on and the 18650 drains and shuts off at 3.4v and the camera is dead. I am playing with a 20k mah external, so i should be able to charge the 18650 at least 6 times. so i need some simple that will open at like 4.1v and then close again at like 3.6v as I believe that will wake the charger back up. I
  24. I need to know if 5v is enough to run the SSI. And is 5v too much for the SSSI and Bigfoot boards. Looking at possibly trying to run them off of an external phone battery. Just don’t want to let the smoke out of them.
  25. You could try these two suppliers, R.C. Davis Game Solutions or Snapshot Sniper. Both have websites by those names.
  26. Been away for a few years and was wondering what you guys might be using for pir? Years back ebay modules gave alot of false triggers
