Ditto on all the above re long-time, no swipes. AND, due to my CRS affliction that flares up more and more frequently, sometimes I leave the sensors on the toad for awhile after returning from trips.
My concern is 100%, "Awwww man, I wasted some battery life," vs. "oh good, they didn't get swiped."
To some of the above folks - I have had mine about 7 years now. Been pondering doing the swap, but I think I saw $39 if you swap, and $50 new.
1. Gary, and str8six, are you on the originals still? Did yours quit, if so about when? did you remove during off season?
2. Know of anyone who took them apart to see what battery # is in there (PressurePro would not be manufacturing batteries, so....) For the $11 difference, I am going to keep 2 back for autopsy, but not just yet, since they are all still fine.
