How to extend your Spotlight Cam battery life

Your Spotlight Cam may not need recharging often with normal use. However, this depends on a number of factors in your home environment, such as the weather and the number of activities captured.

You only need one battery for your Spotlight Cam to work properly. However, if you want extended battery life or don't want to experience any downtime charging the battery, a second battery is available for purchase
