A couple of months ago, I replaced a first generation Amazon Fire TV Stick with the newer model that has Alexa voice control. I've also since replaced another one in the same way. However, the initial (Amazon) set of batteries in the remote control for the first stick ran down in just 1 month and a second set of (Duracell) batteries again only lasted 1 month. I then tried some Uniross Ultra rechargeable batteries, which became flat within a week. This doesn't seem very reasonable and wasn't with particularly heavy usage. I upgraded mainly for the better stick specification and haven't been using the voice control features much at all. Has anyone else encountered the same thing - is battery life very short for this generation of Amazon Fire TV Stick remote control? Or maybe it's a fault? I didn't have any battery life issues with the previous remote controls and it may still be a bit early to know whether or not my second new stick will have the same problem. I realise that I could probably go back to using the old remote controls with the new sticks, but would nevertheless like to establish whether or not this is normal behaviour, so that I can make an informed decision on returning the new ones if faulty.
