The WS1 and WS1 Pro device can be powered both by AA alkaline batteries and rechargeable batteries. According to our test, the VARTA Industrial batteries perform well so they are recommended. Please note, when using rechargeable batteries, you need to charge them separately with battery charger.
The GS1 device is embedded with 2900 mAh lithium battery which can be recharged by type-C USB and DC 5V/12V charger.
Battery life can be affected by many factors.
The following examples are tested under default synchronisation and sampling settings. The WS1 and WS1 Pro are tested with VARTA industrial batteries.
Please note, stable network signal also helps saving power. The signal under which we tested was stable -60dbm.
Here is the different battery life of our products for your reference:
|Device type||WS1||WS1 Pro （WiFi）||WS1 Pro (WiFi+SIM）||GS1 (WiFi)||GS1 (WiFi+SIM)||GS1 (WiFi+RJ45)|
|Battery life||4-6 months||8-12 months||1-2 months
||3-6 months||1-2 months||1 week|
The battery life changes accordingly with the synchronisation and the sampling frequencies.
The shorter the sync interval is, the shorter the battery life becomes, vice versa.
