SPOT performance and battery life may be degraded in operating environments where the
SPOT GPS chip must take a longer time to acquire your GPS location, such as trying to
send a message indoors or under extreme canopies. Colder conditions can impact battery
life. Under normal usage a full battery charge should meet or exceed these amounts.
