Default Battery life

Thinking about buying one of these gadgets...maybe two. My problem is if I set them out I may not get back upstate for a month or so to check them.

What kind of battery life can I expect?
Is there a best model for this situation?
And forget cell signals. Not happening!

Bro go with a Moultrie, I take thousands of pics and get a good 4+ months on a set, once in a blue moon you get batteries that sat on the shelf awhile and they run out quick but it's not the camera it's the battery. they take good pics and get outstanding battery life.

A couple other options would be the Trail Watcher 2035 and the StalkerCam. Both of these have proven to be excellent cameras for me and have better than average battery life.

You can take a further look at these cameras at the website listed below.

I have two moultrie i40 (IR) out right now and they are still on the same battery life as last year. I usually put mine out around May and don't take them down till the snow starts to fall in early december. After roughly 6-7 months out last year I still had 76% of battery life when I first put them out this year. Good product!
