HiWhen I was using four RCR123A in my cameras (rechargeable lithium batteries), I noticed, once in a while, that the cell voltage was around 1.4 V when replacing the batteries -hence the batteries are no longer safe to recharge nor use. I used the excuse that it was dirt cheap eBay batteries and throw them away.Now, after having modified my cameras to use 16650 batteries, I use high quality Sanyo cells. One of my cameras went out of power a week ago (after having being placed a occupied place) but because I was on vacation I was unable to replace the batteries before today. They have been sitting in the camera for 5 days after the camera went "dead" due to low voltage. Now I measure the voltage and it is 1.49 V on one cell and 1.62 V on the second cell. Hence, I have to throw away these quality cells as they are well below the safe discharge voltage.So, Reolink, are you sure that you support rechargeable batteries? Best Regards Jens
As I have been saying for a while, the Argus camera depletes batteries quickly. Doesn't matter if they are rechargeable or not. Reolink need to look into this issue!
I use Olight Accus and charge 2-3Months.
Have you performed an actual measurement that confirms that batteries are being drained quickly after they reach cutoff voltage?
