Below are two informative tables, one for normal use battery life, and one that presents battery life using the deep sleep functions. You can use this data to help understand battery life in different conditions.
Please understand that battery life will vary depending upon device and deployment conditions. Ultimately deploying a PT300 in your actual use case will produce the best battery life insights.
