Battery life update: As of today 12/5/17 my strike force has taken a total of 10,869 since July 12 using Amazon alkaline cells. The battery meter is reading 52%. I decided to pull this camera until things warm. I wrestled with the decision to pull the camera but now its considered winter here in Minnesota. Animal activity of any kind is very limited in my woods. Most deer have moved onto wintering grounds with the exception of a few stragglers. I did test the battery voltage and all 6 cells tested out the same at 1.39 volts. The temperature of the batteries as I tested them was approx 12 degrees F. I will see if the voltage increases somewhat as they warm up from the outside temp. Overall, I'm impressed with the battery life especially since this camera only uses 6 AA's. Normally, I'm happy if a set of batteries makes it from mid August until mid November. I guess until April, when the turkeys are gearing up for a busy spring this test will temporarily suspended.
Since you have pulled the camera, why don't you just set it up looking at your garage or something like this outside and allow it to continue taking photos of you coming and going until its dead. Then report the final value.
Browning said only use Energizer batterys now ......
