What solar panels are you using? Reason I ask is, I bought my 1st Tacticam and the panel system I’ve been using, the plug in on it fit my my other cameras but not the Tacticam.

Does the Tacticam have proprietary plug ins/receptacles?
Should be able to get an adaptor for the plug.

I’ve been watching the buck on the left for 4 years now. He got a got a funky back right leg and his rack has never changed, got just a little bigger last year.

I’m thinking he’s 51/2-6 years old, I won’t shoot him cause my wife and I like to see him back here every year. Just hope the neighbors give him a pass cause of his rack.

Dennis, I assume that you purchased the tactacam rechargeable battery packs. I have been debating whether to buy them or some rechargeable AA’s. Sounds like the solar panel should be all I need and batteries in the Tactacam are just for “backup”?
I think that is right. I believe the solar panel with internal batteries also charges the Lithium rechargeable batteries internal to the cam. I guess one could pull the plug leaving the camera autonomous and see if the display still records 100% charge, but I have not done that.
The book says you have to run rechargeables when running the solar panel which makes sense.

We talking stage left or viewers left? Im trying to decide how much to dislike your neighbors if they shoot him.

Yes it does. I bought a solar panel without the internal batteries that is a different brand that I thought I could adapt to the tactacam. Ordered one of those 25 piece adapter kits from Amazon thinking one would surely fit, and none did.
Then I stumbled upon the exact adapter. I've posted it on this forum in the last couple of months, possibly in this thread. I searched Amazon tonight and can't find it.
