The Song Meter Mini Bat is a lightweight and small stand-alone bat detector comparable to its bigger brother the SM4BAT FS. In addition, it offers many benefits. Thanks to this recorder you no longer need to purchase 2 standalone detectors from Wildlife Acoustics if you want to record in full spectrum and in zero crossing because the Song Meter Mini Bat can do both. It is even possible to connect an acoustic microphone so that you can also record birds and frogs with it.

Another important difference is that the Song Meter Mini Bat can be operated via a smartphone or tablet with a BlueTooth connection. You can download the "Song Meter Mini Configurator" app for free via Google Play or the Apple App store. It also sends interim updates via the same connection to the free app on your device. With your telephone you can, for example, set the date, time, time zone and location.

The Song Meter Mini Bat can record continuously for 30 nights of 10 hours on regular AA batteries. Are you using the 18650 lithium-ion batteries? Then it's not 30 nights but 150 nights, in short: more than 4 months of data. You can then further develop this data with the Kaleidoscope software from Wildlife Acoustics
