When mine was powered by the TV the battery would drain. When I moved the power for the Roku to a wall adapter, the remote battery drain stopped.
For the record, I own 2 Streaming Stick+ devices. One was purchased just this past November 2020:
Roku Streaming Stick+ Model 3810RW with Voice Remote Model 404
The second I purchased in August 2019:
Roku Streaming Stick+ Model 3810X with Voice Remote Model 339
One Roku is on our dining room TV, the other is on our family room TV. Both devices are running 9.4.0 build 4200-50. Both are powered through the TV’s USB port. Headphones are not used with either remote. Last Friday, exactly one week ago, I put new Energizer MAX batteries from the same package into both. They both receive about the same amount of use (maybe 2-3 hrs/day).
Today, the older Streaming Stick+ with Voice Remote Model 339 has 96% battery life remaining. The new Streaming Stick+ with Voice Remote Model 404 has 39% battery life remaining.
I will try connecting the newer Roku to the wall to see if that makes any difference. I may also try the Voice Remote Model 339 on the newer Roku (if it will pair) to see if it begins fast draining batteries.
My Roku is connected to a power strip, but the power strip is turned off 99% of the time. arapheon's message would completely explain my misery. Thank you!!!!
Are you talking about the remote? Most any battery will work. Lithiums will last longer, and also seem to be lighter than regular alkaline. It depends on how often you are using the remote, especially features like voice commands that can use up more battery.
My ROKU is powered from the wall outlet. Fresh batteries barely make it a week. This is a bedroom TV that at most is on for 45 min a day. Is my remote defective? I have a ROKO TV in the living room been using it since Sept. with same set if batteries. Please advise
With a wall mounted TV, running the power to an outlet is neither easy nor convenient. Is there another solution forthcoming? Batteries last about 1-2 weeks on an infrequently used Stick. Thanks.
