    Use the Everready Lithiums. My Spartan lasted 1 yr on the first set of batteries in it. 5425 pics sent.

    For those of you that have the link micro could you give us some pros and cons? Looking to buy one this weekend but would love some opinions.

    well the pros are obvious, dont have to go check the camera if you hunt far from home and even if you do you dont have to go disturb the area to get the pics. and you get pics faster rather than only every 2 or 3 weeks when you pull the card.

    the cons would be you must have good service where you place the camera. that limits me on where I can put it. Id like to put it down in the holler but theres no service there where I hunt so therefore this camera stays on top of the ridge so it has enough service to send the pics. Another con is the monthly plan you pay to recieve the pics, price is based on how many pics you want to recieve a month. And lastly it does seem to like batteries, you can set it to only send you the pics once a day and that really helps, but if you want every pic sent the moment it is captured then the batteries will not last long

    Another con is pic quality. They are not the best but I guess for inventory purposes and price point it’s not too bad.

    The higher the quality the bigger the file/data which increases traffic and possibly cost.

    I think I'll buy one in October and try out that first free month when it matters most to me.

    I mean at the price of 119 I am still glad i bought mine. If it works all season I will probably buy another one or 2 next year if the price dont go up

    I’m gonna buy a covert and get good quality. I know they are higher but I have had good dealings with them and know they have good pics. I only need one

    Agree with everything above.

    Pros: cheap, works good.

    Cons: pic quality not great.


    I bought mine as a test into the cell camera world. So far I'm happy. After I test service in some better locations (further into the woods) I think my next one will be higher price/quality.

    It says it's 10 MP. That's not bad unless you have to set it to a lower quality to make it send.

    So when you say picture quality how bad is it? Would you have a sample picture?

    my experience is the pic it sends to the phone is about 1MP, which sounds worse than it is, in my opinion still a good pic on my cell phone. The 10MP is what is stored on the micro SD card you have in the camera. So if you want to see the 10MP pic you need to pull the card. I do not find a option to change the setting of what MP pic you get sent.

    I would give sample pics for comparison but I have the worst time trying to upload pics to this forum

    I can certainly handle the day pics. How about a night pic anyone?
