It's been going for a few weeks at my home unit and it has been keeping up so far. I'm curious to see how it will do in colder weather. I gave it 4 stars because you need the camera to charge the batteries before initial use, and mine was in the field. If the package or website would have said that I could have brought my unit in; however, I had to purchase a battery charger. Kind of frustrating.
