This is the number of days you can request data from as part of your Historical PowerTrack subscription. These Days run from midnight-to-midnight UTC. A Historical Day is accounted for if any minute of a UTC Day is included in the search period. For example if your search period begins at 2016-01-01 23:50 UTC and ends at 2016-01-02 00:10 UTC, the request uses up 2 days even though the search period is only 20 minutes. If your subscription includes 300 Historical Days, you could make a single 300-day request, 10 30-day requests, 300 single-day requests, or any other set of Jobs that add up to 300 Historical Days..
