Are you serious?! Only 4 months...? They run on watch batteries and watches run longer than that...

Well, Considering the beeping and how frequently you play with it takes up energy. So it depends. Correct...?

Yeah. I think it depends on how much you use it.

Well know they have added the new feature that when it runs out of batteries you can put in the new one and it still has your pet that the batteries ran out on!!! (No more early life expectences for the world of tama!) :D

It has a memory chip i presume. So it can save your game.

So say i have Gozarutchi. Then the batteries die.

I run out to buy some. Put them in. Then it'll say. "Would you like to continue your last game From whrenyou left off?"

haha not that long but that;s what it necassaruicly means.

I guess this is sort of another way to pause, just pull out the batteries and this way it wont waste any juice, like putting it in pause mode.

I've had my TamaPlus since the end of March and had it on ever since.
I tabbed it up for about a week once. It's still on and going very well.
It's got the nice CR2032 battery. It's a 3V that has a long life. I'm not worried.
:lol:

Yeah this is definetly one of the best new features, because losing a Tama to dying batteries has always sucked.

I bought three Tama Connections from Walmart about three weeks ago and the batteries went dead on all three of them today!!! Granted they come with spare batteries but watch batteries aren't really that cheap and three weeks in nothing. I'm peeved!!! :lol:
