The chart below shows how long alkaline batteries (e.g., Energizer, EverReady) last for each TRAFx counter type.
|Counter type||Battery size||Battery life maximum||Battery costs per year|
|TRAFx Infrared Trail Counter||AA||8-10 years||less than $1/year|
|TRAFx Vehicle Counter||C||1.2 years||$3/year|
TRAFx Off-Highway Vehicle Counter/TRAFx Mountain Bike Counter
Note: Battery brand and temperature influence battery life. Expect shorter battery life in colder climates.
If you configure the counter to collect and store data as hourly or daily totals, it is extremely unlikely you will ever exceed the counter’s data storage capacity---and even if you do, you just download the stored data and make room for more.
