Re: [IP] H-tron batteries



My D-tron batteries last about 3-4 weeks. I have rec'd a few bad ones, in
just a few months of starting. When I had my first low battery warning, I
called, as I was on my way to work and stupidly forgot to bring one, and
they said about 24 hrs with "normal use" before it would die.

You know, it would be really interesting to know the breakdown on this list
of who uses what pump. Perhaps this has already been done, but with all the
continual new members...
