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

When you reset after you put a new battery in, you have the option of either hitting "Reset" which makes you start the game from the beginning, or "Download" which starts your Tama back up from the last big event. A big event would be something like your Tama changing, connecting, or waking up.

My US Connection died after about 16 days too... but I've had my UK Connexion about a month and a half and it's still going. Did they use cheaper batteries or something for the US tamagotchis?

I had one "die" after 3 days, and then it "died" after a day, and then another the next day. But I've come to the conclusion (Based on that and other things) that its a glitchy pet.... it's even a conneXion, which most people claim to be better over the North American versions...

As for the spare battery that comes in the packaging of the N.A. ones, I'd read about it so I knew to look, but I noticed as I unpackaged them, that mine had a small circular sticker (about the size of a dime) that said "Replacement Battery Included". It was on the front, towards the bottom corner.

I did a whole lot of squinting and looking for a spare battery in my Connection, but I didn't see one :x Slightly different packaging for Canada, perhaps?

The Canadian ones don't seem to include a spare battery, at least none of the ones I've come across have. But they're packaged the same as they are in the US. There isn't an 'American' version, it's a North American version, UK version, and Japanese version.

My first Tamagotchi came with an extra battery, but then my second one didn't. When I got the first one it did say extra battery included, but i don't remember if it said it on the second one or not.. so i don't know. Oh! and they are both North American versions.

Both of mine purchased in Canada came with extra batteries.

Perhaps it's the date of packaging/shipment? perhaps the first ones released didn't contain the extra, and it was an afterthought? Just a suggestion

[COLOR=redThere was a post on here some where that said thet the US tamagotchis used display batteries and once you got quality ones that your tama's battery life would be much longer! I haven't even used my 1st battery though, but mabey that is because it has only been a week. Mabey it happens to the ones on certain shipments because my frieds battery ran out after six days and the store said they always get a bad shipments on the odd numbered ones!![/color]

thats odd...i didnt get extra batteries (i still have the package in my room)
the old tamagotchis conserved power by fading the screen.

Maybe it's only certain ones that got realeased that got the extra batteries... or perhaps you have a Connexion and not a Connection? I think only the US ones got batteries..

None of the Tama Connections I bought had an extra battery at the Target stores I visited. I did see the ones with spare batteries included in Chinatown stores though.

My connexion tamagotchi has lost most of it's sound so maybe that's a way of conerviing the battery life instead of the screen fading.
