Pen camera is perfect if you need to make short recordings of what/who is in front of you. Because the battery life is limited, this kind of spy camera is not for nanny watching or home surveillance. The battery is going to last up to an hour and a half so it will work great for you if you need to record some kind of interaction, upcoming event, use it if you are a secret shopper, at your office, or for personal protection… Spy pen cameras are completely self contained and rechargeable. You charge them via USB port on your computer.Our motion detection pen cameras DVRP-4GM and DVRP-8GM can be bought with external battery holder that will prolong the battery life up to 10 to 50 hours, depending on what kind of batteries you will be using. Operating a spy camera pen is very simple, for most recording modes it requires single action.  Pen camera records audio and video, you can set up a time stamp too, and can take still pictures.   Our model DVRP-4GH is different from other pen cameras we carry because it has and option for permanently disabling audio an option for time stamp on or off.
