Depending on your using conditions, your Cellular GPS Tracker's battery will last between 15 days and 4 months between charges. This is to be compared with competitor product's 2-5 days battery life that take a lot of peace of mind away. You will be notified by email and by push notification when your tracker's battery life gets low (20%) so you can recharge.
Our Cellular GPS Tracker uses 3 methods to locate its location:
2. Wi-Fi positioning
Your tracker's battery life depends on the following:
If you are in Bluetooth range of your tracker, and you have allowed the app access to your location at all times, our smart energy management mode will significantly extend the battery life. By relying on your smartphone whenever possible, your tracker will maintain battery for the important things, like locating your stolen vehicle. In this mode, battery life will last up to 4 months. Otherwise, if your tracker relies on its GPS method, it will last up to 15 days.
Your tracker regularly sends positions while moving. After the tracker has been stationary for 5 minutes, it will only send one position every 24 hours until it starts moving again. Once it detects motion, the tracker will begin to send its location at the frequency saved in settings. You can set the frequency of positions (update rate) that you wish to have while the tracker is in motion. The more positions you want, the shorter the battery life between charges.
💡 If you are in a dense urban area with many Wi-Fi hotspots around, the battery life will last longer than if you're in the countryside and the GPS Tracker has to rely a lot on the GPS.
💡 As the GPS Tracker sends positions while moving, and the longer you move during a day, the shorter the battery life between charges.
☝️ Our battery life estimates above are based on 2 hours movement a day.
