Hunting Electronics and Tools Batteries Tips
All electronic devices require a direct current source for operation. Portable hunting electronic devices such as game cameras are powered by batteries. All batteries are made up of cells which range from 1.2 to 1.5 volts/cell. Battery manufacturers produce single cell batteries such as AAA, AA, C and D in individual packages. Other voltage batteries are more than one cell that have have been put together, prepackaged so to speak, to create a multiple of 1.2 to 1.5 volts, i.e., 6-9-12-15-24 volts and etc. You can combine your own batteries for your special needs. These needs may be to create higher voltages or maybe just make your equipment last longer in the field.
You can do the same to create
power supplies for your hunting or home electronic devices.
Along with battery voltage decisions,
consideration of battery types have to be addressed. Some batteries are single
use and some are rechargeable. One can save a lot of money by recharging their
batteries, however there are ways to extend battery life.
Some battery chargers can actually shorten
your battery life but the right battery charger
will pay for itself in no time. The charging procedure is also important to
long battery life.
Portable tool battery packs such as those in
drills, screwdrivers and saws are expensive to replace but in most cases you can
make them good as new by
replacing the individual cells
inside the old tool battery packs.
If you have never soldered wire to batteries
and electronic components you shouls know that it is not as easy as first thought.
Considerations to making good solder joints without damaging heat sensitive
components involve soldering iron temperature, proper cleaning, rosin type and
iron contact time and position. If you are not experienced in soldering
electronics you can
learn the basics
in a short time.
Never miss that trophy again and always be alert that it could even be people coming. Helps you be safe because there will never be a reason to rush a shot because Traileyes calls you before anything coming can see you. If you are not a
