Design and build
Just by looking at the Solar Panel with Tripod for Spypont Trail Cameras, you will notice that it is a bit bulky. It comes with a Spypoint Solar Panel SP-12V that functions to power most of the Spypoint cameras in the market.
If you plan on having a discreet trail camera, this might not be a good option, to begin with. You have a large piece of solar panel that can easily get the attention of animals.
Though it is painted black, it is still obvious even from afar. Animals can easily notice something different and weird once this thing has been set up.
The SpyPoint Solar Panel with Tripod is a reliable option even in harsh conditions. In this manner, you can get still rely on this piece of outdoor equipment despite subzero temperatures during the winter.
With this alone, it means that it has been designed for rough weather conditions.
But the question is if it is going to last for months to come? That is still somewhat questionable. Just like other solar panels and external power sources for trail cameras, this option had its share of bad reviews.
Some users experienced just a few good months with the Solar Panel and it stopped working after six months or so. It only means that it is still a risk to invest in this solar panel.
The Spypoint Solar Panel with Tripod excels in this department. In terms of efficiency, it can get the job done. It can be used in situations wherein there is minimal sunlight.
Even if it doesn’t get direct sunlight, you can still rely on it to charge your device. It can keep your device up to 90% level even if it is just getting direct sunlight perhaps around 30 minutes for the entire day.
It means that you don’t have to worry that you will rush towards your camera and get frustrated because the power ran out. You can rely on this solar panel even if it is cloudy or during the winter season.
The Spypoint Solar Panel has its strong points. For instance, it does have robust construction. Another good reason to invest in this solar panel is the ability of the solar panel to charge most of the Spypoint Cameras.
Plus, it can also perform well in extreme weather conditions. Even with limited access to direct sunlight, it does a great job at charging the batteries.
Unfortunately, though, it is bulky. In addition to this, you also have to accept the reality that you are going to deal with a product that has a history of hit or miss. Some of these products only charge for up to 6 months. If you are willing to take the risk, then this might be a good option.
