Has anyone got any experience on the battery drain on the trackers?.
Really thinking of getting one, but don't want to get down to the boat to find the battery flat.

Some of the phone based trackers are tiny, one in the boat & one hidden in the engine too would be a good idea. A decent sized battery should keep them going for a month easy I'd guess.

There's some on eBay for less than a tenner and draw only 0.2Ma. If you get the latest Ni-Mh e.g. Turnigy LSD 6.0V 2300mAh Ni-MH Flat Receiver pack (x2) you should only need to charge them once per year!

I have a road angel Biketrac for 3 years which is excellent and you can check the battery voltage too and set all kinds of alerts. Their call / monitoring centre is excellent too.

Hi group, saw this post on trackers. I am a Private Investigator and ex DI from a specialist function. I have been doing covert surveillance in the police and as a Private Investigator for eighteen years. I know a bit about trackers because for that length of time, it has been my main tool of the trade. I have tried and tested everything on the market.
The problem is with these things, is that there are a lot of cheap Chinese trackers out there. Also a lot of the tracking firms use devices with an annual fee or where you have to send them back to get the battery changed.
The ones I use are small, not expensive (under 500) and cheap to run. I estimate a boat will cost 1 a week for the SIM costs. There is a battery meter online, so when it's low on battery, I get plenty of warning, plug it in to the mains and 12 hours later, it's fully charged. They are fully waterproof.
Just be careful about buying cheap stuff, you pay a lot more in the long run and will have battery or signal failures.
I just use the best stuff there is. It's a bit like being a mechanic, you don't buy 'Twazzer bargain tools' you buy 'Snap-on.
If you need details, private message me. Good luck, Phil.
