I plan on it. One matter of fact is that I DID pay the $29.99 Price; second Device, same, B.B. WHACKED me. Still doesn't explain Battery usage OR if 'Newer/Recent Built' Devices are easier on the old Double A's. I mean, the Copper Tops are NOT cheap Batteries, are they now?
Would you in your opinion, buy ROKU Wireless Speakers, or not?
When you use the remote to listen with ear buds, you are powering an audio amplifier in the remote. Yes, it draws more power. But the important thing to remember is that you must always unplug the ear buds when not in use. As soon as you plug something into the earphone jack, the audio amp is powered up, even if you aren't listening to anything. Leave them plugged in for a couple of days and the batteries will be dead. With my WiFi remotes, I never use the headphone jack, and my batteries last for many months.
Roku does now sell a remote with rechargeable batteries, and it should work with most newer Roku players. It comes standard with the latest version of the Stick+ (model 3821). But for other players you'd have to buy one yourself.
