I wanted to build a cam to withstand really cold temps so I knew I should probably go with a non extending lens cam and power it with all lithiums. I ended up using a Panny FP8 and using dual 18650s to keep everything charged up..hopefully for long periods of time. Case is a Pelican 1040 and control board is a CG micro..powered by a 9v lithium battery. A Joes mount on the back and a pipe-thru to keep it secure.

Good looking build you have there and loads of external power to boot.

Looks super Joe... Nice setup. The camo looks awesome. Another thing that stood out was the little clip u use to hold your desiccant packs. Great idea.

Nice build! I have very similar units out right now. Same cam, running on TEnergy 4,400 lithium packs with a slave. I live in MN where Saturdays temps were -7 with -25 below windchill. I'll let you know how my units fair as well as I was going for the same thing. I think you nailed it with this build!!
