This depends on the output level.

Thanks for all of the answers/input but this is what I was looking for.
I'll track the usage a bit more closely and see if it is the machine or my own stupidity.

If it is the high current draw that is shortening battery life, there may be some use for the newer style of NiMH battery that is designed to not lose its charge.

I guess i am going to be forced to make a power strip checklist

1) plug power strip into line voltage outlet.
2) plug transformer into power strip.
3) turn the power strip on, you stupid.
4) write self note to check in 4 hrs.
5) try to remember what i needed the locator for.
