Thanks for the advice guys...I think I'm using the wrong voltage (at least I hope) for the rechargeables. The ones I am using are D's, 2500 mAh...I read somewhere I should be using 4500 MINIMUM. These buggers are hard to find though...I've looked and looked at various stores and they either don't have them or they are out. As much as I'd rather not use rechargeables, I have my cam out year round and this would cut out a lot of $$$$$ that I'm spending.
I'm hoping this isn't my trail cam (I have a Moultrie D-40), but the last couple times I've had my cam out with these batteries I have 0 pics on them (well, besides the ones that I have of myself to test it out when I first set it up). I KNOW there are deer too that walk past this trail so I'm dumbfounded. The batteries are dead as a door nail too when I pick the cam up a week later. Can't figure it out...Hopefully it's just the batteries but I don't understand why it would take those initial pictures and then none after. These rechargeable batteries used to work before, but maybe they are shot? I don't know too much about rechargeables, but I have only had them a few months! [:'(]
