    I hardly use the light button so enable the EL function consume only battery power.

    Always switched on, never have a problem with the battery as a result. It only works when it's dark enough to be needed, after all.

    leave mine on all the time, with the long illumination setting.

    the power meter has never left 'H'.

    On my Rally Mudman - ALWAYS ON. I can deal with all the other buttons on the Muddie, but that Light button is a real killer. All my other G's I don't set Auto EL at all.

    It's there, why not use it?

    Battery killer? I'm not so sure, as I have yet to see an impact.

    Cheers...

    Hi,
    the only time I use it is when I ride my bike at night to get to work (I work a lot of night-shifts). Right now my only solar model left is the GW-9010 (sold all the others). I think the light button is easier to press than the other buttons .

    Greetings, Sedi
    Cheers

    Always off. Not because it's a battery killer, but because I prefer to be in charge of the light.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Always on. I don't want to have to use two hands in order to see my watch.

    And anyway, when I don't need the EL, there's light and it's charging....

    Most of the time it is off, on when needed.
