GPS trailer tracking Battery life
Do you operate in challenging climates and enviroments? Our railer tracking device is specially designed to work in a wide range of operating conditions and environments
From sustained sub zero operation to high temperature environments we will provide a solution that uses the most suitable power or battery configuration.
"What is the battery life" is one of our most commonly asked questions, the answer is not straight forward. Think of the trailer tracker as a mobile phone, how long do you expect your mobile phone to last on one full charge? This could be from a few hours when in constant use to many weeks when in standby mode, the same applies to the trailer tracker.
Typical battery life - guidlines
GPS/GSM battery life - we would typically expect 2 to 8 yrs of operation depending on usage characteristics and environmental conditions such as temperature extremes and GSM network coverage which affect battery perfomance;
Light tracking use - we consider "light usage" to be 1 position reading taken every 4 hours, with "light usage" we expect battery life of 4 to 8 yrs.
Heavy tracking use - we consider to be 1 position reading taken every 30 mins, with light usage we would expect a battery life of approximately 2 to 3yrs
Chase mode - If the trailer is stolen and you want to switch to chase mode, then expect the unit to last approximately 20 weeks sending out a SMS and GPS every 5 minutes on a fresh battery pack. Click on this link to learn more about trailer security
Battery life estimates are approximate and depend on many factors like storage temperature and GPS and GSM duty cycle time which are affected in turn by quality and strength of signal.
Wireless sensors battery life- all of our wireless sensors come with battery options offering lifetimes of between 1 to 5 years making them exceptionally easy and quick to install. For more information see Wireless cargo sensors
