    Talking Batteries

    Does any one else use their batteries out of their transmitter in their receiver? I have found that the batteries out of the transmitter still have a lot of charge.

    I have found recharge batteries do not work in a transmitter. The will die in less than half a day.

    What? MY transmitter batteries in my 400 usually last me at least 6 months. I guess I just don't want to waste co. resources like some other people around here

    Gees Spray, you're ALWAYS good for at least an LOL laugh.

    The batteries in the boat anchor, er, I mean the lean mean locating machine RD4000 some of the guys up here use have a life of about 4 minutes.
    Wow, you have an AWESOME machine dude!

    Well, to be honest, I usually use power/passive mode. I probably don't actually use my transmitter over 2-4 times per day.

    Default RD 400 and Rycom

    I have a 400 now and I only change that batteries in it every 3-4 months I even use the hell out of it. As far as the Rycom the one I had I was very lucky to get a week and a half out of it. But I still like the Rycom a whole lot more.

    Hey Spray,

    It's real easy to make the batteries last when you don't take the transmitter out of the truck...

    Gee Spray that is real comforting to know you power mode everything.
