How long can the SmartOne Solar device report location without any sunlight?


This depends greatly on the initial state of the batteries, how many messages per day are being reported, and the ambient temperature of the device. If the batteries are fully charged then, at 20°C ambient temperature, with the SmartOne Solar reporting 2 messages per day, it is estimated that the batteries can power the SmartOne Solar to report for approximately 6 months.
