    I run a dive charter operations and we have 4 Resource Pro consoles. 3 are 16 months old and 1 is 5 months old. After changing the battery in the 3 oldest (about 30 - 40 dives each) the Battery went out in 2 of them in 2 to 3 weeks 5-6 dives. The new one needed a new battery after 3 months - 7 dives.
    I have changed the batteries twice in a 3 week period and they are going out again.
    I have used Name Brand Ever ready and Energizer batteries. Can anyone help me.

    are they going into sleep mode correctly after the no fly time passes or staying on the whole time?

    have you used a multimeter to check the battery voltages before, after, and under load?

    there is a possibility you have a parasitic drain issue, but it is more likely just poor quality batteries
