Re: Synchronome battery life
That should be a standard 1930s synchronome. If it has a pilot dial then it is normally run on 6 V (nominally 4.5v master + 1.5 per slave, though of course as you say it is designed for constant current), and one set of cells should last you well over a year, probably two
your serial number is not listed in the serial number list on clockdoc (in the synchronome documents folder under synchronome at wp.clockdoc.org) . It would be great if you could check out the features and let us know what to add, especially if you have any accurate dating information.

Subject: [synchronomeelectricclock] Synchronome battery life
My Synchronome #2054 ran for 45 days before latch failed to reset. Setup is transmitter and pilot at 11.5 ohms running at nominal 3 volts and 280mA from 2 Energizer Max D batteries. Thought it might do better,
how do others get on with running on a small battery pack?
