Dead after 4,500 miles

I've had pretty good luck with the batteries in my various PT wheels. Only once back in early November did I have my hub batteries die; it was a training ride where I really wanted the data as I was killing it on a common road I always train on.

Today the battery indicator started to blink, and again, I was doing some intervals. I had my fingers crossed that the batteries wouldn't completely die. They didn't! I looked back at my training log and saw that I last replaced these batteries roughly 4,500 miles ago. Not too bad for a $5 part.

Now if I could get the PT computer unit to give me this kind of performance I'd be happier. It seems to eat batteries every 2,500 miles.
