Vantage Vue ISS Battery Choice

What brand of battery are folks preferring, for the station not the console, as I'm getting the 'Low Battery' warning and no nighttime data symptoms.

And has anyone adapted one to run on mains power?

I realise that any warranty would be voided if you used a non-approved method of power. I was thinking of a dummy battery with a voltage and ampage correct mains supply. Just a thought.

I don't have the Vue ISS but in the past there had been reports of bogus Low Battery warnings on the Vue but not read much recently. A search here may show some of the discussions. I have used the Duracell 123 as replacement for my ISS.

The VP2 ISS has alternate power option but not aware for the Vue.

Enjoy,
Paul

Thank you dazza and Paul,

Seems like Duracell it is then.

No official mains supply for the Vue, just thought that someone might have 'hacked' it to work by unofficial methods ;)
