Q: Battery life short on Trophy Cam.
A: 1. Expected battery life depends on temperature and number of images. Bushnell expects the camera to take several thousand images before the batteries would die.
2. Check to make sure you have used new alkaline or lithium batteries. Bushnell recommends 8 Energizer Lithium AA batteries in all Trophy Cams.
3. Make sure that the power switch is turned to the “On” position and that the camera was not left in “Setup” mode while in the field.
4. Make sure that you are using a good quality SD card in your camera. Bushnell recommends San Disk Brand SD Cards. Unfortunately, poor quality SD cards can make your camera have a much shorter battery life.
