Ltl Acorn Solar Panel Information
Solar Panel for your Ltl Acorn wildlife camera
Increase your Ltl Acorn trail camera running time in the field by using the Ltl Acorn Solar Panel alongside your batteries. Or use the solar panel as a sole source of power for your trail camera. This can be a very environmentally friendly way to use a trail camera as you would not need to buy or recharge any AA batteries.
I can run my wildlife camera without any AA batteries at all?
If the conditions are right, you may find that you can use just the solar panel and the energy from sunlight to run your camera. This is probably more likely during the spring & summer months and when setting the trail camera to capture images rather than videos, which would draw more power.
This solar panel is manufactured by Ltl Acorn, the makers of the Ltl Acorn range of wildlife trail camera traps and is compatible with their entire range of trail cameras (at the time of writing). It comes supplied with mounting bracket and fixings plus the necessary cable to connect to your wildlife camera.
Does the solar panel require direct sunlight?
The solar panel will work at it's most efficient with direct sunshine but also draws energy from any natural, bright conditions too. So just because the sun is not out, this does not mean that your solar panel is not converting energy, charging it's built in battery and powering your wildlife camera!
Solar panel with it's own built in 2500mA battery cell
Once connected your wildlife camera will use the power from the solar panel 2500mA battery cell first, if this power becomes exhausted then it will revert to using the power supplied by the AA batteries that you have put inside the trail camera. The Solar Panel does not charge the AA batteries but instead, actually works as a rechargeable 2500mA battery cell itself, recharging via the solar panel in bright and sunny conditions.
SOLAR PANEL IN THE FIELD - CASE STUDY:
On the 5th March 2021, I set up a Ltl Acorn 5210A Trail Camera with a fully charged Ltl Acorn Solar Panel as it's only source of power, no AA batteries were inserted in the cameras' battery slots. The camera was set to capture still images only (not record video) whenever triggered.
The camera and more importantly the solar panel were placed in a location with good, direct sunlight on sunny days.
It is now the 20th April 2021 and the camera is still going strong and has so far captured 799 still images. So that's an average of 17 pictures per day being captured with no batteries being used at all and so no cost to run other than the original purchase costs. No batteries to buy and/or no electricity used to recharge them. Great for the environment and your pocket!
