What is the battery life of Trakbond GPS tracker?


            Similar to your smartphone, the battery life of Trakbond may vary depending on how its used. Trakbond uses a variety of algorithm to maximize the battery life. For instance, that tracker will automatically go into Power Saver mode when it's still at a place for more than 5 minutes. During this mode, the tracker will not be connected to cellular and satellite signal to conserve the battery and LEDs of the device will go off. 

            In Power Saver mode, tracker shows the last known location of your child in the mobile app.
            During this time, the Trakbond looks for vibration and motion in a very low power operation. When the tracker gets in motion again, the Trakbond exits from this mode and sends  the location again to the mobile app.

            Battery life that you can expect, and additional tips to make sure you get the most battery life are listed below.
