Can anybody think of a way to power a raspberry pi in an indoors-but-not-climate-controlled environment, for up to two months at a time?

I think my only option might be a car battery.

@progo locker lease sez no radioactive materials :(

@r000t first look at a pi zero, it draws less current and this sound more like a sensor recorder use than internet or video etc. There are hat boards to give a Pi Power over Ethernet (PoE) if you are hardwiring an Ethernet line to it. A solar panel recharging a battery pack is the way to go for long term field use. I think I've seen hat boards to manage running & recharging at once. Usually batts are small, a deep cycle 6V batt could last 2 months, calc the load in Amp-hours x 24 x 62.
