Battery life of up to two years is expected based on default settings. Battery life will vary based on device settings, use, and environmental factors.
Things that can affect battery life:
- Slow internet connection speeds use batteries faster.
- Extreme heat and cold can affect battery performance.
- Weak signal strengths between Blink devices, and the Wi-Fi network, can increase battery consumption.
Note: Blink cameras are only compatible with size AA 1.5 volt Lithium non-rechargeable batteries.
You can monitor battery level in the Blink app, on the Camera Settings screen when you tap the settings icon in the camera thumbnail and select General Settings.
Battery strength indication is either OK or Needs Replacement.
As a warning, the Blink app will display a "High Usage" alert message when your camera settings are likely to cause higher than normal battery consumption.
