    Default Tri-Tronics Pro 100 G3 Transmitter Battery Life

    I have a fairly new pro 100 g3 transmitter. How long can I expect the transmitter battery to last before it dies and would need replaced? Which I understand they are no longer available. Debating on switching out collar systems or expand my current one to a 3 dog system. I would much rather spend 260.00 for two more receivers than 700.00 on a Pro 550 3 dog system.

    I have a 5-6 year old G2 transmitter that still works well, take good care of your G3, keep the batteries charged, avoid prolonged temperature extremes, and you should be good for a while. There is hope that batteries for the G3 transmitter will be available again and given the cost differential I would keep what you have until the equipment dies or becomes obsolete.

    Thanks for the feedback Ed. I'll expand what I have and take good care of it.

    I have a pro 500 G3 with 3 collars. It is about 5 years old and the battery is fine. Had to replace the transmitter a couple of months ago when I broke it. At least now I have a spare battery (unlike the G2 batteries, the G3 batteries look like they would not be difficult to replicate)

    G3 transmitter and receiver batteries are still available. In fact, the older XL and XLS transmitter and receiver batteries are still available as well.

    It's the G2 transmitter batteries that are no longer available.

    Where, no G3 transmitter batteries available from TT, Collar Clinic, or Gundog Supply.

    They were available everywhere a month ago, but all that I could find in a quick search just now was this.

    What is the comment on the product that says "if your Tri-tronics product is less than two years old contact tri-tronics"??

    It's not as bad as it seems. If you need a battery right now, you can take your Xmitter pack in to a Batteries Plus, or similar establishment and have a new one built with new cells.

    I hope people didn't panic buy and dry up the supply. NiMH batteries aren't something to be stockpiled, as they go bad just as quickly (if not more so) on the shelf, as they do from being used and re-charged.
