I am in the process of purchasing a pronto and was wondering if anyone can let me know the battery life assuming you are not using the recharge/docking station.

i agree, i have had mine around 6 months and have only just changed the batteries that came with it.

one thing though, use good quality batteries and when the battery warning comes on, change them asap otherwise it may start doing funny things.

Before I changed mine, it was resetting itself whenever i pressed a button.

But this is no critiscism, i love it.

If you buy a NiHm charger and a set of 4 AAs they should last a couple of months per charge. When the battery warning shows, take them out and recharge overnight. The Pronto configuration will still be fine without the batteries in for quite a while.
After the equivalent of 3 sets of standard batteries you should be quids in.
I did this because I love having the backlight on and the screen time set for several seconds.

www.7dayshop.com have good prices on batteries and chargers, I have had good experience with them but no other connection (mods remove if recommending suppliers is not permitted).

I have my screen backlight on for 10 seconds after the last button press and still get aroun 5 months from a set of good quality batteries.
