The PowerTag is our battery variant of the LifeTag, allowing the same functionality, but with the ability to transmit day or night. The PowerTag is ideal for nocturnal species or animals that swim or burrow.
Each PowerTag contains a globally unique digital ID, allowing researchers to discern between almost unlimited animals and differentiate between different projects and studies.
Unlike other radio tag technologies, our digital IDs cannot be confused with noise bursts and other false positives.
Some example species for PowerTags include terrapins, box turtles, rodents, kangaroo rats, kiwis, night rails, and song birds.
PowerTags have even been used to track underground burrowing animals.
