View Full Version : Remote control drains batteries FAST

2005-01-22, 13:04
We haven't had to change the bateries in our original remote for our SliMP3
yet (Although we now have 3 remotes [one for each device] so we may have
mixed them up over time - but we haven't changed the batteries in any of
them yet)
