I've had mine for about two years and have gotten a fair amount of use out of it. I don't use it all the time, and most times when I use it, it is sparingly. Every now and then I've given a full-blown work out, wrangling as many as 500 full-power shots out of it.

But, this past weekend I left the house with it fully charged and managed only about 50 clicks (using two AB1600's) at full power before it died.

I talked to tech support and their over-the-phone diagnostic was that the battery had probably reached its end of life. Evidently, the batteries are good for only about two years. No problem, just need to budget for the $99 replacement battery and to order one before you need it.

YMMV...

Good to know and thanks for the heads up about this. Even budgeting for that, it's still a pretty damn awesome price.
