Stealth Cam Auxiliary Battery Kits
very easy to use
I only had mine for a few weeks but it worked very well, it's easy to charged and hook up to the camera. I can't really say too much about the battery life or durability because after only a few hours in the woods i had mine stolen by a bear. This is the last picture my camera took before he ran off with the battery.

a must have!
I recently added this battery kit to my trail camera set up and what a great tool! You can set your camera up and leave the area for extended periods. No more dead "C" batteries to worry about. It worked great for me in the Iowa blizzards last year and just kept on snapping the pics! Get a high memory SD card for your camera and let it do its thing. I plan to add an additional camera to my set up this fall with another battery pack like this one. Very handy!

We have been using these for about 2 years now at our hunting camp. I think we have 6 of these out. Overall they are a great concept. Have had the same issues as others with them collecting water. We have tried different things to alleviate this, but just doesn't seem to make a difference. Finally, we drilled 2 holes in bottom of box for drainage. This year we put a metal screen (like in your faucet) over the hole using epoxy cement. (We had a slight ant infestation without it). Everything seemed to work fine this year. Batteries seem to last fine (average 3-4 months) when Temps are between 45 and 70-75, anything lower or higher and the batteries do not seem to last as long. (average 30-45 days). Still this is better than most others, and easy enough to recharge. Will keep using them.
A side note is, that we have found if the battery gets direct sunlight, they do not seem to last as long. Not sure if this is the case for all of them, or just the batch we are using, but when we place them in a North and South direction deeper in the woods, we get longer battery life out of them.
