    Hi all,

    How long do your batteries last in your 5000t remote control? Mine only seem to be lasting about 2 months. What type of batteries are you using?

    Thanks in advance.
    Christina.

    The Duracell Plus Power batteries in my FVP remote (RM-L08) have been in for at least 6 months and currently the measured voltage is 1.46V so I would expect them to last for a fair while yet. What batteries are you using?

    The supplied batteries didn't last very long, I'm using Aldi batteries in there, been in maybe a year, just measured 1.35v

    (I've had no complaints with any Aldi battery, been using them for years)

    Lidl's AA batteries are the which best buy for cost V duration,

    Mine are Kodak so I'm surprised they aren't lasting very long as I always thought that was a good brand.

    Are yours zinc chloride, alkaline or lithium?

    Thanks for your help so far.

    The only batteries I have ever used in my Humax remote controls are the supplied ones. Many of these have been in daily use since 2009/2010, and are Rocket brand alkalines.

    I bought 20 Kodak batteries a while ago and none of them have lasted very long. Worse batteries I've ever had.

    should have been a quote from Christina. Sorry

    That's really interesting Steveq.

    It's looking like I might need to try something else then. I thought maybe these remotes were just very hungry and it was a universal problem, seems not though.

    Kodak seem to be the £1 shop brand and I'm sure are zinc.
