I have aquired a LEICA distometer D5 .
On the first day I got familiar with all the function although only the simply distance measurement function is of interest .
Next morning I found the batteries to be empty .
I loaded a fully charged AA set and found that set (two AA) drained after about 24 to 30 hours , without having done any measurement .
The same happened with an other set as well .
As per the users manual , a fully charged set of batteries shall be good for 5000 measurements .
For those of you , who use a D5 , what are your experiences ?
