Long Term Security

20 May

We were having some issues with batteries with the scoutguard trail camera ever since I dropped it and snapped off the battery lid..so onto ebay I went and for $6 I got a 6v cord attachment. With our 6v golf cart batteries which run our place we lost 1 battery..totally fried..image

Which means we needed to take 2 batteries out of the bank to keep everything wired @ 12v..so we have this battery to run a trail camera now. Using some spare wiring I hooked it all up.

We still need to hook it up to a charger but it is all working fine now. The trail camera uses 8 AAA batteries a month so the cord should pay for itself pretty quickly..now I just need a place to covertly place all the gear and hopefully i never have to think ‘I wonder if the trail camera batteries are still good?’
