Three batteries...still worked!

This is weird.
About a week ago I was down to one bar on my battery level on my F70 so I replaced all four batteries.
Went on a short hunt and then a longer one the next day with a friend for about 4-5 hours.
On that second hunt I noticed I was down to one bar again which is strange, this thing usually just sips power and I can go way longer without seeing one bar fall off the battery icon.
I figured maybe I got some old batteries or something but during both hunts I saw no strange behavior...depth was great, no extra jumping chatter or anything else.
Before my next hunt I got four new batteries and I was going to change them all out but when I opened up the unit I saw two batteries in one side but only one in the other.
WTH?
I have now idea how this could have happened or how I could have done this without noticing...but I did.
I threw another battery in there and got full bars again and after a 4 hour hunt I still have full bars.
Evidently even wounded these things can still perform.

I post this at the risk of being made fun of forever more but if you can't laugh at your own stupidity in this world who can you laugh at?

I don't mind giving others a smile at my expense either. Sometimes things just happen. It is interesting that it ran with three batteries. HH!!

Sounds like a senior moment. Revier, I can't believe that it would even turn on much less work. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, that's good to know it'll run on three for a while.

Word is the F Series is so deep...........you don't even need to turn them on. Or maybe you are just a "high energy" guy? :hot:
( funny though..........saw a guy out with a willow "wishbone" limb, had a 9 volt on it...........guess the headphones were wireless as I didn't see them plugged in) :shrug:
