Foxelli’s Trail Camera is a beauty at a great price. It’s fully stocked, easy to use, and packed with helpful features. Trail cameras are a great modern invention that allows one to either survey their land like a high tech security system, or to simply watch the wildlife (or hunt, of course, if that’s your thing). Recently, I moved to a lovely plot surrounded in rural Ohio woods, and I’ve employed this trail camera to do just that, watch the wildlife. Near my forest, rumors have long talked of bobcats, deer, and big foot (but that’s another story for another time, and no I don’t believe in Sasquatch LOL). So I installed this trail camera at the edge of the woods, facing inward and along a real nice wild game trail, and the results were amazing.
Not only did I have a chance to see a slew of wild deer, but the camera also caught some wild turkeys, squirrels, groundhogs, and a lost out-of-season hunter. No bobcats yet, however. The best part is that all of the videos are so crisp and clear that it’s easy to find the wildlife. Foxelli’s design is solid, running on 4 or 8-AA batteries, while capturing an awesome 1080p video quality at 14 megapixels. This camera is equipped with a 2.4” LCD color monitor on the inside beside the battery compartment, which lets you preview what you’ve captured, without having to run back to a computer.
Other features include vivid colors during the day and an upgraded night vision which shoots in black and white. The way the trail camera works is that it’s motion activated, so if something moves within 65-feet, it’ll turn on and capture the scene. The night vision works because of its 42 Low Glow IR LEDs. The trigger time also impressed me, shooting off at a 0.5-second trigger time. Once the camera is mounted, it can last up to 8 months in standby mode. The durable IP65 water resistant case is a must have feature for any outdoor camera, obviously. But as far as cool features goes, it’s the data recording that impressed me, as the camera offers time stamping with moon phase, temperature, and has a timer, real-time replay, hybrid mode and an interval recording mode. Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of the product, especially at the price they have it for at the time of publication (well under $100).
This solar charger is a great piece, because it’s dependable, convenient and highly portable. These portable and packable solar panels covert up to 24% of solar energy into ready to use power for your USB devices. I found this product to be invaluable for most of my trips, because even when I backpack Europe, finding easy power can be quite a chore, and not only because of the required adapter. Not many people take too kindly to power thieves. As far as features goes, the solar charger is pretty straight forward, with it’s ability to charge two devices simultaneously and to detect when new devices are plugged in, adjusting output accordingly to provide enough power for all. It’s compact, lightweight, and fitted with hangable options in case you wish to charge on the roof or your tent, or on your pack as you hike. All in all, I was very impressed with Foxelli’s products, so if you’re curious about them too, click here to find out more information.
