    Since the Tagg tracker battery can last up to 30 days, depending on use, it usually needs to be charged only about once or twice a month. You will receive a text or email when the battery power runs low, and also when it’s fully charged and ready to go back on your pet.

    Your battery life will vary depending on several factors, and there are things you can do to help get the best possible battery life.

    The first and most important thing to do for best battery life is to make sure your docking station is set up properly. Additional factors are the size and construction of your property and home, and how much time your pet is not near the docking station. When your pet is away from the docking station, your usage of the tracking features obviously consumes power. Finally, if you have good cellular coverage at and around your home, this can have an effect not only on battery life but also on the product performance.

    Depending on the factors above, actual battery life can vary greatly. If your pet is almost always at home and nearby the docking station, you can get up to 30 days. If your pet is away from the docking station almost all the time, maybe because you are on vacation and the docking station is at home, you may only get a few days’ battery life. Most of the time you will probably experience something in the middle.
