Couldn't agree more. The latest "micro" cameras all have internal lithium batteries and a small solar charger on them, no battery tray for disposables any more.

I have one of the first gen solars with the internal battery, 18 months later i'm still on my first set of disposables as well. Almost no need for them unless there is no sunlight at all for a week straight.

The solar on the camera didnt seam like a benefit to me. You really dont want the pannel facing south any way due to the sun on the lense. I'm also in deep woods and sometimes on public land.

After some research I may just use a SLA battery in a ammo can.

Mine faces west-ish and is in heavy wooded cover. It gets direct, but filtered sunlight maybe 45 minutes a day.

Battery in a can would be nice because you could size it yourself so you never have to check it if you don't want.
