I hatched a newer tamagotchi at the same time as my original ones (That came with the spare battery.)
Both of the old ones lost battery life after only 13 days, and the new one is still going. I've just started my 2nd gen with it, but so far it seems to be much improved.

the first batch of american tamagotchis were chewing up batteries demo ones and store bought ones. i think i spent 20 on mine just for batteries!!!
Okay... an update. I am now on my third generation (with the same green matrix Tama) with a teen. So far, the batteries are holding up great. Let's keep our hopes up. Now with the first batch, was it the fact that the tamagotchis themselves were chewing up the batteries, OR that bandai was using cheap demo batteries? Any help would be great!

Yeah, I spent at least that on my pair, probably closer to $40 on batteries. Yes, it's more than buying a new tamagotchi, but I didn't want to buy new ones that would just eat the batteries as quickly.
You've got to be kidding me. $20 on batteries alone. It's cheaper just to get a new Tama... So why are the new ones doing better?
As for why they did it, it was obviously a programming problem, since as the previous poster said, they killed anything. I only bought Duracells and they died in 13 days!
