    Batteries in Remote - 4xAAA - only one always drains completely, is that normal?

    If you have a weak battery the other batteries will run it down quick and even reverse its polarity as happened to Chris. I would trash the one that keeps getting discharged. Even better if you have an analyzer and can test capacity and internal resistance. Mike

    Can you tell the connection of the battery holder? Are Is there an intermediate voltage tap (possibly for maintaining memory)? Any chance the batteries are old and mismatched? Do you have a way to measure capacity and internal resistance? Mike

    Has Your "Taste" In Lights Changed With Time

    I gained an appreciation of s coolish Neutral White (around 5.0-5.2k or so). The 6.5k+ will get you the advertising lumens and allow you to signal the mothership with the eerie green glow. Mike
