Moultrie Power Panel for Digital Game Cameras
This product keeps you out the woods so you can get real pics of the wildlife without having to constant change the batteries.

The pannel takes over as the main power source, when pannel has no sun, it switches to internal D battery power, the pannel does not charge internal batteries so dont use rechargeables! as they are only 1.2 volts anyway and will under power your unit.
I have used a 9 volt rechargeable battery, hooked to a solar shield, with a inline 9 volt regulater, to trickle charge my moultrie D40's internal 9 volt battery to run the unit but if you try this you will void your warranty!!! At the moment i have both running and charging for about a year now, without any battery runnning low. If you use this moultrie pannel correctly its a great product for what it was made to do. (Remember it does not charge batteries, it has its own battery built into the shield.) > Moultrie dont help with warrantys anyway!!! or Bass Pro after 30 Days.
HOPE THIS HELPS YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

moultrie = waste of money
Seriously don`t waste your time with anything that says moultrie on it. I have 3 game cameras, 2 I-60's, and an I-40. The LED display on all three cameras don`t work, and the IR doesn`t work on one of the I-60's. Moultrie has admitted that there is an issue with the LED displays and have recalled them. Well Apparently they have been on back order for 4 months now. I have 2 solar panels that don`t hold a charge. One solar panel didn`t hold a charge out of the box, the other
one worked for 6 months before it stopped holding a charge. I also have 2 scent drippers that only worked about a month each.

Don't waste your money
After about a year this panel will not stay charged. Friend at work bought one and had the same problem. Best thing to do is buy the stealth cam brand that includes a box and battery. Hook up a solar panel to it and it works great. Been using it for 3 years now and no problems.
