Re: Rechargeable batteries in new remote won’t hold charge
I've had so many remotes stop working that I've lost count. I've been using rechargeables, but it occurs to me that the remotes may need alkaline batteries. I just got a stud finder and the instruction is to only use alkaline, not rechargeable. So maybe that's the cure for faulty remotes. Roku does include alkalines with their remotes, although they don't say anything about rechargeables AFAIK. A few days ago my remote stopped working (with rechargeables that had a full charge. I swapped in alkalines and checked the battery life onscreen after a few days of use - it was 100%.
