Battery Life Expectancy

The internal G2-BAT-2D battery pack of the G2-RAIN has a life expectancy ranging from 1-3 years dependent on the following:

  • Data Transmission interval of 1x/day (default)
    • More than 1 scheduled data transmission per day will lower battery life significantly.
    • Event Based Transmissions are not factored into the life estimate and will also reduce battery life to a varying degree.
  • Data Logging interval of 30 minutes (default)
    • More frequent logging intervals will increase system power consumption and lower battery life.
  • Deployment in a temperate environment
    • Cold temperatures (near or below the freezing point) depress battery performance and can result in data transmission failure.
