I bought two model MCG-13035 that were “Refurbished”. Bought two packs of Energizer AAs, checked every battery individually. Average voltage was 1.787VDC. Put both cameras out. Checked a week later and both cameras were off. Check batteries and voltage was .9-1.3. Bought another two 12 packs of Energizer AAs and checked VDC, all were same as before. Loaded new batteries and camera says battery strength is 99%. But also says “EST Remaining: 2 Days”.
Lithium’s should last an entire season. I’m now $60 poorer on batteries alone. What is sapping power at a rate that would kill brand new Lithium Energizers in two days?
