Alarm Mode is the main factor that drains the battery. With this in mind, you don't want to have many false alarms. Avoid moving the Monimoto when the key fob is away.

IMPORTANT: If you decide to enable "Show location on Regular Status Update", keep in mind this will also reduce battery life.

If in constant alarm mode and in-motion the unit will attempt to send a location every 5 minutes and this will drain the batteries in 1 week.  In 'Live tracking' mode, every 10 minutes consumes 1% of battery. Use this mode only when you want to track your device more closely.

Monimoto Key Fob

In general any kind of motion or vibration drains the key fob battery. The lowest energy consumption is observed when the motorcycle is not moving and the key fob is not around. When the key fob is around, Monimoto connects with it and energy consumption slightly increases.
