Re: Do all Roku’s drain remote batteries so fast?

I’ve heard before on YouTube that Duracell batteries are horrible.  However, one of the community’s frequent users, @atc98092, actually has a good experience with them.

I’m into videotapes and old electronics stuff, including extenders, converters and analog 4:3 TV sets (which are obsolete these days), and Miss Bianca is my favorite character in Disney’s The Rescuers (1977) and its sequel, The Rescuers Down Under (1990). I am not a Roku employee, only a user like you. ~ Jordan

Re: Do all Roku’s drain remote batteries so fast?

We have two remotes and we are changing batteries on one every week. The second remote we change the battery about every two weeks. You can go bankrupt purchasing batteries for these voice activated remote controls. When it freezes up and will not work, I’ll take the back off and the little indicator light on the inside the cover is blinking or a steady green. I do believe this light must be staying on and draining the battery. Are they any solutions?

Hi @Sisters

We're sorry to hear about the issue you're experiencing.

Could you reply here with the serial number of the Roku device associated with the affected remote? It can be found at the back or underneath the player itself. We'll be able to further assist you from there.

All the best,
