I've got 9 pair that I purchased based on the reports here in this forum but the battery issue was not well known yet. It's really too bad Monster won't own up to this and provide a solution, it almost has to be a leak or drain on the battery when the glasses are off. Until then I guess I'll just have to keep planning ahead for 3D content and charge them up. At least they all still last an entire day when fully charged but I suppose that clock is ticking as well.
Good Gravy 9 pairs of glasses with the battery problem?!?!!!
The first pair of glasses I got from 3D-VIP back in time had battery that worked but it was always claimed to be near dead. It never posed a problem getting through a movie esp if I charged it before hand but it was nothing like the 30 movies between charge claims I have seen.
So,... they swapped the set out with another pair and presto... it solved the problem. Not certain the replacement could go 60 hours but it went for weeks between charging.
With 9 pairs,... I would be nearly postal with rage if they had battery problems.
I really think you should write directly to Bit Cauldron. If I was them,.. I would say mail them in and then I would mail out replacements. Who else believed in the product to the point of buying 9 pairs. I have to check my Guinness book of records but I think you are listed as owning the most pairs.
I really hope you get something done...
On the possible bright side... I do believe the battery is replace-able... I mean it looks like there is a little screw on battery cover on the side. Maybe a fresh battery would work... maybe.
