How does Reolink Go connect to the Internet?
Reolink Go uses 4G LTE cellular network. Like our mobile phone, Reolink Go needs a micro SIM card and cellular data plan (both require separate purchase) before using.

How much data will Reolink Go use?

Based on that, you can estimate the data usage to choose the right data plan for you.

How long does the battery last?
Reolink Go comes with the 18650/3.6V/7800mAh rechargeable lithium battery. Normally, the battery lasts for about 2 months in Standby mode. And if you access the camera for live feed, playback and configuration or the camera is activated by motions, the battery will last about 500 minutes. Reolink Go will send you the low-battery notification if the battery level goes down to 10%.
