Moultrie Trail Cam Power Supply.



I have a Moultrie D55IR trail camera that I have only run in video mode. When triggered the camera will take one still picture then run a 5 to 30 second video. The problem I have is that it seems the camera will not trigger unless you or an animal comes within 3 feet of it. Moultrie says this could be due to low battery strength. My batteries at the time indicated 80% but this may be too low for the video mode.

I see Moultrie has a 12 volt solar power pack but some say you really need direct sunlight for it to charge effectively. Is there any reason why a person could not hook up a 12 volt motorcycle battery to the power port? Seem like a heck of a lot better than trying to run the camera on a few flashlight batteries or a $90 solar charger.
