Long life

Written By Badlands Dog, Dickinson, ND on Thursday, November 03, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Its a battery-either they last or they don't! I bought an extra so I always have a fresh battery. With three cameras using the same battery, these last a long time and I am very satisfied with it.
Long battery life, short recharge time.
