Re: Synchronome battery life
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I have run mine for many years on 3 volts - two Duracell D cells. Ihave consistently found that a pair lasts about a year, give or take. (I'm driving a single dial - just the clock's own one). If the latch was not re-setting after 45 days I would be looking at all the adjustments of coil-armature gap, contact gap and so on. It is true that fresh batteries can overcome some minor misadjustments in the re-latching process.

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?
