The development of digital game cameras has revolutionized the way that many people hunt. Cameras allow you to see what is on your property and also help you pattern the game that you are after. Battery life has always been a priority to game camera users. It is important to keep your scent out of the woods and travel to your hunting sites as little as possible. The development team at Moultrie realized the need for an external power source that would extend battery life in their 2007 and later Game Spy models. The Camera PowerPanel is the latest, and most anticipated, game camera accessory by Moultrie. At first glance, the PowerPanel resembles an ordinary solar panel that charges the camera’s batteries. As we all know, looks can be deceiving. The PowerPanel is actually a self-contained, external power source. It features innovative software that combines a solar panel and built-in 12-volt battery to extend camera life in the field. The LCD screen displays real-time solar value, as well as daily and weekly solar averages and internal charge level, allowing you to mount the PowerPanel in optimal sunlight. When the PowerPanel is charged the camera will pull its power from the PowerPanel and not the batteries, allowing the batteries to remain charged. In the case of lowlight conditions, the camera will automatically switch back over to the camera batteries until the PowerPanel recharges. Using the PowerPanel will help diminish the need to frequently change out batteries and disturb your hunting area. Moultrie’s PowerPanel is weather resistant, includes a 10-ft cord allowing for optimal placement and is compatible with all 2007 and later Moultrie camera models.
