I just bought a Bushnell Trophy cam from Cabelas last month. It is going back to them ASAP. Battery life was about 1 day. I put in new batteries again, turned it on to format and the darn thing started smoking! No kidding! I wonder if it was a pre 2009 model? Anyone else have this problem? Thanks.
First, after you got 1 day on the original batteries - did you put a battery tester on the batteries after you pulled them from the camera? You may have had a bad battery. One single bad battery will bring the voltage down on the whole set.
second, Is it possible you inserted your batteries in the wrong direction?
