Sigs Crazy Response to Romeo1 Battery Life

So a guy on YouTube has a breakdown when Sig CS tells him that the two week battery life on his Romeo1 may be all he is going to get. Someone here posted that he was told by Sig CS that the 320RX was not meant for home defense or concealed carry and the battery may only last a few weeks. Several others here have posted that they have gotten several months of battery life and the battery is still going strong. Now finally my reason for another battery life thread. The July-August issue of Combat Handguns has an article on the 320RX full size. The author wanted to know what the battery life would be so he contacted Sig. I would assume someone calling Sig for info who was writing a magazine article on the 320RX would get someone who really knows about the gun. So on page 68 of the magazine the author states that he was told the battery should last 40000 hours on medium brightness. That's 4.5 years of continuous operation according to the author.

guarantees on anything electronic are mostly worthless.

The author of the magazine article was wrong.
At medium brightness you could expect 1,424 hours or 59 days of continuous operation while in motion. Obviously if you aren't not moving for 59 days continously then you should expected the battery to last much longer thanks to the MOTAC feature. Also, SIG does recommend turning it off if you aren't going to be using it which extends the battery longer.
The intensity setting has the most to do with the battery life. For example, on the lowest setting you should hypothetically get about two years of battery life while moving around.

I have a Tracphone Disposable phone for when I travel. Have to add minutes every 90 days and that's it. They sent Me a new Gen 3 phone last year and it has an Ion Battery. The instruction manual says that I Must Charge the Battery weekly since it is programmed to run down. My old phone did not have to be charged weekly. So much for progrtess to Gen 3
At least I can hear better on the new one.

Can the battery be replaced on that, or is it throw the whole thing out and buy another one?

It would be pure insanity to design something the battery couldn't be replaced on. Even really tiny lady's watches have replaceable batteries, so I have little doubt this thing does also... someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.

It takes a common 1632 battery. The battery compartment is on top so it can easily be replaced, some need the sight taken off the gun to get to the battery.

59 days at medium might equate to two years at lowest setting. Probably even more with auto sleep mode. At a very high brightness setting, maybe just weeks.

My Holosun, Trijicon, and Vortex Viper all state 2 years at lowest setting.

A gun that is carried daily is likely to get less. If I could reasonably expect 6 months, I'd be OK with that.

I was the one who posted Sig CS told me it wasnt a carry gun. I think the only consistent thing is inconsistency. My 226RX is on its original battery, months old but not on all the time, but my 320 didn't last 10 days on or off.. YMMV.

That being said, I just picked up a 320c RX and I am hoping for the best.

I have not had any battery issues with my RX, but I've only owned it for about 6 months.
