What is the battery life of the SPOT Gen3?

Last Updated: Jul 31, 2013 12:12PM IST
SPOT Gen 3 has approximately twice the battery life of the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger (which can be found at bottom of page).
For reliable performance, use AAA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium 8x batteries (L92), NiMH rechargeable batteries, or line power. Using USB line power will NOT charge rechargeable batteries. The power light will blink red when batteries are low. Colder conditions and extreme heat can impact battery life. Always carry an extra set of batteries with you. Non-lithium batteries will work with SPOT but are not recommended for optimal performance.
Test your SPOT device before each trip by sending a Check-In message to yourself. Using non-recommended battery types may degrade the performance of your SPOT’s message transmission.

When utilizing fully charged AAA Energizer ® Ultimate Lithium 8x batteries (L92) you can anticipate
the following battery life for a SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger (Note: SPOT Gen 3 has approx. twice this battery life):
