I have several clocks in my house that run on AA batteries. One in particular, the battery runs out within 4-5 days. It is on an outside wall, but the room is well heated in the winter. I have replaced 3 clocks thinking I just bought defective clocks, but 3 clocks within 6 months is a little strange. I have tried different brands of batteries, all brand names. What do you think it could be? Thank you, Joanna Bell

I hardly find there is a need for clock anymore.

Everything comes with a clock now days, microwave, DVD player, phone, computer, etc...

If the clock is wasting battery, better not have it to save yourself money and save the environment.

it is very strange, may be due to other functions of the clock.

you can use high capacity rechargeable battery instead of buying new non-rechargeable battery

IMO, not a good idea. It is likely to over drain the Ni-MH battery and kill it.

Put one of the other clocks that do not drain battery fast on the wall in place of the one that drains battery fast and determine if the other clock starts draining the battery fast. Then you will see if the issue of draining battery fast is a function of the wall or of the clock itself.
