I came across this again and thought I would post it for you technical dudes to look at. I know we use general calculations for estimating the battery drain of batteries but I thought this article was really good  in showing how to calculate to the fullest the drain of a battery due to all the conditions.

Most of you will not appreciate this or even care to look at it but I thought it was pretty neat.

Take a look at the low power example towards the end.

Thanx Brian,

interesting alright,  I've noticed some battery selection calcs ask how long you want the batterys to last, which seems kind of backwards to me.  I didn't see that in this article, which makes more sense (to my lame brain)

See Ya!

Lots of good info.I like the part about battery holders.  I have been bitten twice because of battery holders while building/testing these cams.
