This set up will allow your bird monitor to be operated remotely for long periods of time. The power bank enabler wakes up once per day and recharges the Bird Monitor from the power bank. The solar panel recharges the power bank. Even without any solar charging the power bank will be able to charge the bird monitor for more than 2 months (more than 3 months for the 24,000 mAh power bank). The larger power bank will operate better in lower light situations because it has a larger amount of storage and a larger solar panel.

We are still testing these to see how long they will last in different situations. As such we can't guarantee how long they will last. Our calculations show that the solar panel should easily keep up with the power requirements for the bird monitor if it is in direct sunlight and may work in shade.  Check out our blog for updates or subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the page.

If your Bird Monitor is connected to the internet you can see the battery level in the Cacophony Portal. If it is not connected then you will need to retrieve the Bird Monitor from time to time (every 3 months - 1 year depending on the storage) to download the recordings. You can check the battery levels then.
