I battery died after only 8 days!

I can only assume this was a peculiar circumstance, but has this happened to anyone else?

:) Yeah, that quick battery drainage gets really annoying sometimes... Oh well, must cut back on connecting :blink:

The batteries in my first tama conx died after about 4 days and then the second one I bought lasted maybe a week and a half. It is strange to me since the batteries in one of the first tamagotchis i had lasted for years. I assume the extra graphics are more draining. At least Bandai was kind enough to add an additional battery in the packaging.

My American ones both died after about 16 days.

There is another battery in the package. I hope every one knows that.
Wouldn't want to throw that away.
I'm going to wait to put it in though. I have the more reliable Japanese ones going along with one other American one I bought a week after the first two.
I'm not happy about that short battery life either. :D

My own Connection lasted a little over two weeks until the battery died. I haven't connected with it yet, so I assume the "longer" life is because of that. ^^;

All three of my connections' batteries died after 10-12 days. At least you can download them.

Have you checked the time?

When my batteries died and I downloaded, the time was off by a few hours.

Also, I found that 24 hours doesn't necessarily mean a day ("year"). My own Tama doesn't age until it's fallen asleep for the night.

Also - if you pause your Tama alot, that could also affect it's growth speed.

As for the batteries...I've heard they go quickly. I'm hoping it's just a cheap battery issue, and that when I purchase some good quality replacements, they'll last longer.

What do you mean by "You can download them?"
