The superb Enduro Black Box Voice Recorder, manufactured by Spy Equipment UK, is an incredible long-term voice activated audio surveillance recording solution for both room and inside a car, lorry or other vehicle.
Exceptional endurance statistics, deployment possibilities and other features set the Enduro Black Box Recorder apart from our other spy voice recorders making it the perfect stand-alone audio recording solution for a room, inside a car or other vehicle.
At Spy Equipment UK we are regularly asked to provide a self-contained recording solution with extensive battery life capability and voice activation that can be deployed in a variety of situations. As a result we decided to create the a recorder to accommodate surveillance requirements of our customers. This black box device is extremely simple to use in every way. After giving the internal lithium battery a charge, it is simply a one switch operation to set the device recording before deploying it into your chosen situation. The Enduro has the option powerful magnets being attached, which, for example, makes it ideal for attaching to the metal framework on the underside of a car seat or maybe an office desk.
When not recording the unit draws very little power from the battery, which means that essentially it can remain powered in standby mode for over 76 days! However, when the device is actually recording it takes far more power, but still is able to record for nearly 46 hours before it requires a recharge. With voice activation as standard, this means that when placed in an environment where there are only a matter of maybe 2 hours of so noise during a day, the recorder could remain active for possibly weeks if required. Add onto all of this the fact that the Enduro has a superb 144 hour (4GB) recording memory and it is easy to see why we regard this as possibly the best stand-alone recorder available. Each time the device's microphone picks up a sound, a recording will start and will stop and save the file when there is no noise for at least a minute. It should be noted that the operating system of course cannot distinguish between a human voice, sound from a TV or car stereo of even road noise from a vehicle on the move.
This product has a very sensitive microphone that can pick up sounds in a 10 metre (30 ft) radius. When activated it does not give any audible indication of secret recording taking place, so it is totally discreet in operation. Offloading audio recordings is very easy. There is no special software required. It is simply a matter of connecting the unit to your computer using the supplied USB lead and then the sound files can be played back through the computer speakers using the computer media player.
We have now launched a new alternative version of this current best-selling product to give it even more versatility. As a cost option you can now order the extended microphone version of the Enduro by selecting this from the drop-down menu (where you will find the optional deployment magnets). This extended mic. version has an external microphone with a lead of approximately 1 metre in length. This means that the unit can be hidden away from sight and the microphone placed in a semi-exposed position, which maybe more suitable in some circumstances. Also the very small microphone could be inserted under a door or maybe through a keyhole to enable listening into a neighbouring room. The possibility for deploying the extended microphone Enduro in different ways is merely limited by your imagination. So, if you are looking for a powerful, versatile, compact and very effective stand-alone voice recorder, then the Enduro maybe the perfect choice

No, although the device will record a separate file for each period of sound in the environment, unfortunately the time and date for each file will not change.
Will the recorder still record if it is hidden away from view?
Yes, the recorder will still pick up sounds from the environment, although if it is heavily buried out of site, the microphone effectiveness may be reduced.
