1.5 TB micro SD

Feels like this would be a use case for a solar power system for an audiomoth, or potentially even a hydropower system if you're monitoring a riparian ecosystem.

Went down a rabbit hole reading the battery threads on here. It strikes me that gravity batteries might be a good solution in rainforests. String a line over the highest branch you can and then raise as much weight as you can. I'm unfamiliar with the power requirements of camera traps / audiomoths but I might do some napkin calcs if i'm bored this week. @carlybatist
