I've always used Energizer.  I get 6-7 weeks from a regular AAA 
Energizer battery, using the backlight frequently but not the vibrate 
alarm.  I know some people have reported problems when they used 
Duracell or some other brand.  Energizer batteries are available 
everywhere and they're not a huge expense so I don't bother 
experimenting with cheaper brands.  It's not worth it to me.
