Battery Efficiency for Battery Powered GPS Trackers
Real Time Battery Powered GPS Tracker
GPS trackers come in different types. So how do you know which one to choose? Your choice of a GPS tracker would actually depend on how you would use it and what you need it for. If there is more than one vehicle that you need to track, then what you need is a portable GPS tracker. This is where a battery powered GPS tracker will come in handy. This battery powered GPS tracker are mostly portable and it can be easily moved from one location to another or better yet can be moved among multiple locations while allowing the users to customize the reports and alerts it delivers, just like any other trackers do.
Once your GPS trackers are all set up, the next thing to do is to figure out what other types of alerts should you create for yourself to get efficient results as well as making the job easier for you. Here’s a review of a type of alert that is just perfect for any battery powered GPS trackers.
When you have a battery powered GPS tracker, probably the most challenging aspect of it is how to make sure that it stays charged. Imagine having a GPS tracker that suddenly stops functioning during peak work hours. Suffering from down time due to a battery drain from your GPS device can be very frustrating. Although it is quite possible to have the battery powered device drain as low as 10 percent or even 5 percent and still make it work properly, there is still a very large possibility that you will lose your connection, so why risk that, especially if the job is too important?
Battery powered GPS tracker
Let’s admit it. Most of the time, the leading cause of getting a battery powered GPS tracker get nearly drained is purely because of our forgetfulness. This is where alerts become your BFF! Once you login to the system for the first time, you may only see the pre-set up alerts that you can readily use. You will have to configure the set up. You can usually find this on your dashboard. Once you are on the correct menu, you can now create the alert that will save you from forgetting to charge the battery of your GPS tracker.
All you have to do is to set up a “Charge your Battery Notification” so you can be reminded that you need to charge the battery of your device. One technique that you can incorporate would be to set yourself some reminders at a different level of percentages such as 75 percent, 50 percent and another one at 25 percent so you can make sure that you are able to keep an eye on the device’s battery life.
Low Use State
Now there are some instances that tracking is very important that power drainage is absolutely a no no. If this is the case then you should choose a battery powered GPS tracker that has the ability to conserve battery life. There are available devices in the market that can shift from dormant to active. When it is active, it sends updates on its current location to its servers then it would return to dormant thus maintaining low power consumption and saving battery life for extended periods.
Internal Powered Batteries
Another option would be to choose a device that has its own internal battery. Internal batteries usually last up to several weeks on a single charge and recharge for as fast as 3 hours in a wall plug.
But, no matter what type or what brand, regardless of the recommended battery life of a battery powered GPS tracker, the most logical thing to do would be to set a reminder for yourself so that there’s absolutely no room for your device to stop working, especially when you need it the most.
