Need cap for unused Solar Connector (when unused)
Good so far! Love it. Quality is Great! I expect no issues -except related to the below (not-closed-solar-connect-point / not-used). For my Lost Dog Trapping needs - I can not use the Solar connector (just too much xtra to set up for my highly mobile Spartan needs). _ I (and others with high mobile use) need a option to either remove that extra cable or a cap to cover the unused connector, to prevent the dirt, moisture, debris from getting in that unused end. - or a option to turn it into a second camera connection, instead of using a splitter.
Placed this unit in our food plot and it’s great knowing I won’t have to worry about replacing batteries!! Only thing that would be nice is if Spartan would give you a tree strap for each piece(camera, solar cell, battery box), for the price you pay.
Water proof because we have had more than average rain fall and strong winds along with strong thunder storms.
I do lost pet rescue, and sometimes we need camera coverage in places over an hour away. This box (along with the battery) is a huge money saver -- not only because we don't go through the AA batteries that we used to, but also because we don't have to make trips to the camera in order to change the batteries! It's lightweight, and easy to carry, too.

This is what you want to use instead of the AA type of batteries .
