Alarm Mode is the main factor that drains the battery. With this in mind - you don't want to have many false alarms. In other words, avoid moving the Monimoto when the KEY FOB is away. New batteries are enough up to 500 locations.
IMPORTANT: If you decide to enable the "Show location on Periodic Check" keep in mind that this "Location ON" reduces battery life dramatically.
In alarm mode and on motion unit sends and receives new location every 5 minutes thus making batteries last only for 1 week. In live tracking mode every 10 minutes consumes 1% of battery. Use this mode only when you want to track something. We have warned you.
Monimoto KEY FOB
In general, any kind of motion or vibration drains the KEY FOB battery. The lowest energy consumption is observed when motorcycle is not moving and the KEY FOB is not around. When the KEY FOB is around, Monimoto connects with it and the energy consumption increases compared to the conditions when KEY FOB is not around.
