    I think the corn will run out 1st. I have 2 but use 1 to feed fish in the pond the other feeds deer and turkeys . They are on 5 gal. buckets but the battery will last 2 or 3 months.

    I have a moultrie feeder 40 gal. I replace the battery about once a year. Put in a good energizer or duracell. The cheepo batteries aren't worth a hoot.
