SPOT Gen3 Support

General

SPOT Gen3 is no longer in production, however, it is still supported on the Globalstar Satellite Network.

What is the battery life of the SPOT Gen3?

SPOT Gen3 has approximately twice the battery life of the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger.

For reliable performance, use AAA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium 8x batteries (L92), NiMH rechargeable batteries, or line power. Using USB line power will NOT charge rechargeable batteries. The power light will blink red when batteries are low. Colder conditions and extreme heat can impact battery life. Always carry an extra set of batteries with you. Non-lithium batteries will work with SPOT but are not recommended for optimal performance. 

Test your SPOT device before each trip by sending a Check In message to yourself. Using non-recommended battery types may degrade the performance of your SPOT’s message transmission.
