    Poll: Auto EL - do you use it?

    Hi,

    I'm curious how many use the auto el function if your G supports it. I've read that the luminescence fades over time and perhaps this is a reason to disable? If you use auto el - is it accurate or do you have frequent "false alarms"?

    Re: Poll: Auto EL - do you use it?

    I use it on certain occasions.
    If I'm on a night trip or hike I'll activate it.
    But I usually only use it with my solar watches.
    The rest of the time I turn it off.
    It works but it's not perfect. Several people here prefer the light function on the Timex models.

    Not on a permanent basis, but yes, I use it.

    Don't worry about the EL fading. It happens only after years and years and years and years of use.

    May be you could ask a moderator to add a sometimes option to your poll. I'm a sometimes user.

    Im pretty much with Deacon.
    On my solars, they are ALWAYS on. On my others, they sometimes on. Sometimes off. Depending on the age of the watch and battery.

    Moderators - could you add a "sometimes" option please?

    Hi,

    Didn't even consider this option
