Miniature GPS tracking device for Flying Fox with rechargeable battery

Must be good....customer orders over and over again

The inquiry came in from Japan. GPS with remote data download and cannot weigh more than 18 grams. No problem. We managed it with the GPS, remote data download option and VHF transmitter at just 15.4 grams. Now Telemetry Solutions produces GPS data loggers in large quantities just for bats!

Granted at this weight the battery life is not extensive but these GPS data loggers were made with rechargeable batteries. Plug them in via their USB port to charge over and over again. To understand how a user knows what the battery life is going to be please click on the how it works button to read more and then watch the Flying Fox GPS video at the bottom of the page.
