Alter Ego – Died after a few hours

Alter Ego – Died after a few hours

Bought a brand new Alter Ego delay today.  Using batteries for now and it died after only a few hours.  Thinking this is an obvious dead battery situation I replaced it with a fresh one.  And hour later the same thing happened.  No light…dead.  I do get an occasional light after unplugging and replugging the battery, but it doesn’t last. 

Update..just plugged the same battery in and it now works…never mind.  Dead again.

I’m powering quite a few other pedals on batteries and they last for months.  What gives?  I’ve heard a few scary stories about TC and I was hesitant to buy this pedal.  Hopefully I’m wrong.

Please advise
