I've had my FS320RX for about 4 months now. I've never turned it off. It's still the original battery that came in the package and it's still working fine.

I think someone has been given some erroneous information.

There is a parallel thread covering the same topic with more on this:

320RX - This can't be true

Personally, I've had my P320C RX for 5 weeks now and haven't changed the battery yet. I leave the motion sensor on, handle the gun every day and carry 2 or 3 times a week.

I've found great variations in battery life with electronics that use these lithium flat cell batteries. Even though I buy them fresh, dated and a name brand, I get inconsistent results. Could be part of the issue here.

Not trying to pop mine open since its still factory virgin. Can someone quickly post the type of battery it takes. Is it CR2032?

The LGS put the battery in mine.. I see a lot of talk about the cover. Is everyone using the tool that comes with the gun, and still having a hard time getting it tight?

I used a standard screwdriver to tighten the cover about a 1/4 turn past what the tool provided would torque it to. Haven't had a problem, ANY PROBLEM, with either of my Romeo1 Units.

Ditto for me. I had read on a forum here to use the screwdriver method as you described over the included tool and it's served me well.

Most battery covers I see have tool marks on them...I was curious if it was from a screwdriver, rather than the supplied tool? I hadn't seen a thread about a screwdriver working better though...good to know.

The battery that came in the package with my gun just died after 6 months.

I'm hoping that maybe with better quality batteries I'll get longer life next time.

Did it die all of a sudden or slowly get dimmer so you had a warning?

Either way, the batteries are so cheap that I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Not likely necessary, but you could pop in a new battery every month to be super cautious for less than $ 2.

Cheap and easy to replace. Even if cheap, if you had to remove and re-zero each time that would be a pain.

I think for me (and maybe for others) The Romeo1 is new, and we're wondering about the quality, and battery life could reflect? After having mine for a little while now and seeing no problems at all, and seeing very few complaints other than initial issues with buttons, my confidence is pretty high.

If the batteries last a few months with my use (range once a week and average 1/2 hour a day dry) I'd be happy. I suspect with my use, they will last quite a bit longer than that.

It did not begin to dim. The precursor to death was that it started to shut off on me after about 30 seconds, while the gun was still in use and moving.

I agree that this is a minor issue. The no-name battery that comes with the gun is probably of low quality, I just ordered some Duracells from Amazon for less than $2 apiece, and the battery compartment is easily accessed from the top of the optic without messing with the mount.

Hi folks, first post here.

I am about two months and 700 rounds into my first Sig a p320 RX. After my second range outing the red dot died mid session and I assumed it was a faulty unit so I began to search on the web and came across the some of the same posts referenced above about poor battery life and what some guy at Sig supposedly said about the short battery life.

I also came across a post from someone who shoots on the Sig Team who said that the battery covers always came loose if you simply tightened them down with the supplied plastic tool and the way to keep the cover on was to use a steel screwdriver (gunsmith version if you do not want to mess up the screw) and tighten it down to 5-10 lbs of torque.

As soon as I read this, I tightened mine down with a steel screwdriver and voila, the red dot came back on and has been running like a champ for the past two months through numerous range sessions and much dry firing.
