Blink cameras can last for up to 2 Years* on a single pair of non-rechargeable AA Lithium batteries. This is defined as 40,000 seconds of Motion Clips and Live View. This is the average use for the majority of Blink camera systems.
Here are a few things that can affect battery life:
- Using Alkaline or re-chargeable batteries. (We do NOT recommend this)
- Slow internet connection speeds
- Extreme temperatures
- Weak signal strength from a camera to the Wi-fi and/or the Sync Module
DO NOT use AA Lithium Ion or Li-Ion batteries as these carry a higher voltage and may cause issues with your camera.

*A new set of non-rechargeable AA lithium batteries should last for a total of 40,000 seconds of motion-activated video recordings and/or live video. We define standard or typical use as approximately 10, 5-second video events per day.
