Pro Tip #6 - Battery Levels
Battery Levels & the Wireless Portal
The best way to actually know if your batteries have died is to look at the bottom right of the photo for the current power level in your batteries. P5 is fully charged, anything less and your batteries are starting to die or have died. Above you can see that the third photo is showing P3.
Using Alkaline batteries of any type will show a slower degradation in power level until they run out. Below is a camera that was using Duracell Alkaline batteries. Notice the degradation of power level but the last update was 16 days prior with no indication that the batteries were going down.
While it is good to see the power level slowly degrade, Alkaline batteries only last one third (1/3) the time that Lithium batteries do and do not work as well in extreme hot or cold environments. They also tend to leak over time and could cause internal problems with your camera, corrosion will eat away at the springs and will also cause polarity issues and could overheat and melt the inside of the camera, this portion isn’t covered under the camera warranty.
