What can I say about the Elekon Batlogger A+?
If you're looking for a static full spectrum recorder to leave out on site, the Elekon Batlogger A+, the Elekon Batlogger C, the Pettersson D500X, the Anabat Swift and the Wildlife Acoustics Mini Bat and SM4BAT FS are the ones to consider.
All units record bat calls very efficiently, but the main consideration is going to be deployment times. The Batlogger A+ can last for up to 7 nights and the Batlogger C can last for 5 nights with the single included battery or 10 nights with the optional additional battery. The D500X can last for 14 nights. The SM4BAT FS, Mini Bat and Anabat Swift can last for up to 30 nights.
My preference is the SM4BAT FS, Mini Bat or Anabat Swift for their unprecedented deployment times and ease of use, though the simplicity of the Batlogger A+ is also very attractive.
With all of these units (except the Mini Bat) you'll also get a free bat calls book worth £35: either British Bat Calls by Jon Russ, Social Calls of the Bats of Britain and Ireland by Neil Middleton et al, Bats of Britain & Europe by Christian Dietz & Andreas Kiefer, Is That a Bat? by Neil Middleton or a £35 voucher.
