I'm curious if anyone has any luck in a long lifespan with the traditional battery (non-solar) Waveceptor models. I bought one when they first came out and the battery only lasted a year. (It was supposed to last 2 years). I never even used the watch. It seems like it would have lasted even less than that if I had ever used the alarm or light.
Now, I wouldn't even think of buying one that was not solar powered. I'm even a little hesitant to use the daily signal-receiver. Although I know that a lot of you have had good luck with the solar/atomic on daily signal use.
