Why new models? What is different about them?
Wildlife Acoustics proactively seeks out, listens to, and values our customers’ feedback. The new Song Meter Mini 2 and Mini Bat 2 address feedback shared by customers after spending millions of collective hours in the field recording with our first-generation models. Improvements include:
- Alkaline models get double the battery life of their predecessors, so you can spend less time and fewer resources replenishing your power supply and more time recording wildlife and soundscapes.
- A tougher, IP67-rated weatherproof housing that is built to withstand the most rugged terrestrial environments, so you can deploy confidently, knowing your recorders are proven to perform dependably in harsh elements.
- A redesigned, hinged, lockable enclosure makes it easy to gain (and prevent unauthorized) access to your recorders, freeing up your hands to focus on deployment without worrying about a separate lid.
- An added tripod mount enables flexible deployment in a variety of habitats using off-the-shelf equipment.
