FYI - I keep real time turned on. The cam has been deployed for 1 year and I have not opened the case. I have it on a 6 V external battery and a 10 watt solar panel. The real time option does not put much extra drain on the battery. Plus there has been enough sun to keep the external battery fully charged.
