Using in cold weather

Gen 4

The Gen 4 will operate in temperatures between 14º Fahrenheit (-10º Celsius) and 104º F (40º C).

❄️ If shooting in temperatures below that, then waken the ShotKam from Sleep Mode every 10 minutes to heat up the electronics. When you see a solid green LED light, the Gen 4 is buffering video and ready to record. This process generates heat from the processor, so it keeps the battery warm. Either close the action or bump the gun every 10 minutes to keep the battery warm.

Using your ShotKam in very cold condition will not harm battery life, but using it in very hot conditions above 110º F (43º C) can permanently shorten battery life. Do not leave the device in a hot car because temperatures in parked cars can exceed this range.

Gen 3

The Gen 3 will operate where the ambient temperature is between 38º Fahrenheit (3º Celsius) and 110º F (43º C). Using your ShotKam in very cold conditions will temporarily shorten battery life, cause the device to turn off, or cause inconsistent recordings. The battery is made of lithium-ion which is a liquid (same as iPhones), so it can freeze. Battery life will return to normal when you bring the device back to higher ambient temperatures, so there is no permanent damage with extreme cold weather.

Hot:

Using a ShotKam Camera in very hot conditions above 110º F (43º C) can permanently shorten battery life. Don’t leave the device in your car because temperatures in parked cars can exceed this range.
