*The above estimated tag life relies on battery variability, temperature, power settings, features utilized, etc. Life estimates are calculated using manufacturers’ specifications and assumes 250 transmissions per day and, where
applicable, 24 Fastloc® acquisitions per day

Most SPLASH tags come in a 10 (does not contain Fastloc) or BF (does not contain depth) version. Ask your technical sales consultant which tag best meets your research goals.
