Remote control batteries

Battery level warnings come up much too often compared to other remotes I’ve used.  Today, I put in new batteries then asked to check level, which indicated 24%.  I put the old batteries back in and they measured 94%. So I put the batteries that measured 24% back in and they then measured 94%?!

just one of many issues I have with X-1

Re: Remote control batteries

I use a cheap battery tester before I replace batteries in my remotes(I have 10+ in my residence).

Re: Remote control batteries

One of the few downers of the x1 is the way it eats batteries.  Dollar store batteries last about a week in mine. Duracells last 2-3 months and that is it. Still beats Fios by a mile
