Pros

Moultrie Solar panel is especially good if you own a trail camera model that eats a lot of batteries. You can save bundle of batteries and the solar panel will literally pay for itself.

The panel is very easy to use and adjust. LCD display gives you good feedback for adjusting the panel so that you can maximize the solar energy obtained.

The use of the panel also enables you to use larger memory cards in your camera when you don’t have to worry about batteries draining out.

 

Cons

The wires between the panel and the trail camera are thin enough for varmints like squirrels and raccoons to chew through them. This can be a real problem in some installations, so you may need to figure out a way to protect the wires.

If both the internal battery of the panel and the batteries in you trail camera ever run low, Moultrie’s cameras generally need to be reset by the user before they will begin taking pictures again. (This is is more of a problem in the Moultrie’s camera design than in the solar panel itself, but something to be aware of.)

Some customers have reported problems with the power connector with the older trail camera models (eg. Moultrie D4o, Moultrie D-55). Apparently in some older models the connector does not fit properly and can fall out quite easily.

 

Conclusion

In most cases the Moultrie Power Panel is an excellent buy. In the long run you can save a ton of money not having to replace the batteries all the time. If you own a trail camera model that drains batteries easily, then this power panel is definitely a product for you.
