The battery life of the Findster Kids modules goes up to 8 hours. Also, here are the factors that influence the battery life.
Since Findster Kids is the only GPS child tracker to allow true real-time GPS tracking, it produces more positional updates than every other GPS child tracker available. Consequently, the battery of the modules will also drain faster than other devices, which produce less (and less accurate) location updates. Please note that the battery life depends on several factors (see below).
Factors that influence the battery life
The battery life may also be affected depending on the environment you're using your Findster Kids:
- Connection range: the battery lasts longer if there are not many obstacles (or any obstacles at all) between the Guardian and the Child modules. If the modules are too far away from each other, the battery will drain faster in order to hold on the connection between them.
- GPS accuracy: if you're having a great GPS signal, the battery will last longer as it won't need to scan for many references in order to acquire a position. On the other hand, if the GPS signal is weak, the GPS will keep processing the information in order to obtain an accurate position, which will drain the battery fast.
