eternaflame power status
by charles watts on Tue, Dec 4th, 2001 12:02:00 UTC
Hi! I purchase an eternaflame from one of your dealer sources ... a model 3 Ergo ...

The light arrived yesterday ... and one of the first things I did was from the Timer Mode, mash on the rate button to check the POWER STATUS of the pre-installed batteries.

I was surprized to find that only 3 lamps lite, indicating the batteries were beginning to weaken.

And this was before I even used the darn thing!

I contacted the dealer was told the light was delivered out of fresh stock.

What if anything can I do? Don't want to return the light, because I really need an SOS lamp.

But by the same token, I need the batteries to last a good long while ... so HELP!

    If you examine our website and marketing literature, you will not see any marketing reference to the power status feature - we almost decided to not document it all. This was a feature that was added simply because there was code space left. However, we knew it would be somewhat finicky since it depends on one's precise ability to time and there is some variance from unit to unit. My advice would be to not read too much into the reading your getting. Chances are the batteries are indeed fresh. If you take readings multiple times you see a variance in your results. If this feature is really important to you then you may want to practice using it until you are consistent with the results you should have. The eternaLight will not leave you "high and dry". You will have many hours of notice of lower light output giving you ample time and opportunity to change batteries. Read the FAQ on our website here, there is an entry from a user on his precise way of using the battery status feature. Good luck!
