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. 

I’m powering quite a few other pedals on batteries and they last for months.  After 30 plus years of playing and buying pedals this is the first time I’ve actually had a pedal die the day I bought it.  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
