batteries for trail cams?

Postby DeerCamp » Tue Aug 26, 2008 7:42 am

I was at walmart today looking to buy some ladder steps and I ran into these new batteries that are made for trail cams, they are spose to last longer has anyone heard of them or used them? They where $5.44 for a 4 pack of them . I believe they are called Drenaline. They even have the camo painted on them.

havent heard of em. i usually buy the cheapest ones i can and get about 10 days out of em. i remeber an episode of 20/20 or something where they tested the life of all name brand batteries. the longest lasting batteries were the no name ones that come with products in the packaging.

If you are really looking for a battery that takes the cold well, get the engergizer lithuims. They hold up great in the cold but you do pay for them!
