Rechargeable batteries are a great solution to power your Wildlife Acoustics recorders as they save a great deal of waste. However, if you get the wrong ones they will not work well. Most rechargeable batteries are designed for toys or other equipment where longevity is not critical. Also, many lower-end batteries will have a high self-discharge rate which means they lose power quickly, even when they are just sitting on the shelf.
If you have used our ultrasonic Song Meters before, you may be familiar with two different options for saving our recordings, triggered .wav, and our proprietary compressed format, .wac. While we recommend triggered .wav format in almost all cases, there are a few instances where it may benefit you to use .wac format instead.
