Mind if I call you Pillow Tart?
call me art, or whatever you like
Thank you for sharing that information. Someone had previously said the original batteries did not last as long as the replacements.
Pioneer said: "The batteries included with the unit are to check initial operations; they may not last..." A year later and they're still going strong. It's the remotes stored on the shelf you have to watch, those 1.5 Volt cells definitely will leak and ruin the remote for you. The 'AAA's that came with my XM-SkyFi were toxic powder/paste inside their wrapper.
Also good to know about how 2032's hold their voltage up above 3 Volts until they are done. Alkaline's are easy to estimate life left from voltage test. In my experience the 2032's have a much longer 'shelf-life' than the Duracell (like over ten years and never saw a 2032 leak).
My single DVR+ Remote gets lots of use and I will report here when the 2032 batteries are spent. Approaching six months now.

All I ever knew was if there were a pair of batteries, you never replaced just one of the pair.
Thank you for all the interesting information, makes sense to me.
I know if you have a fully charged 12 V lead/acid and connect it to a dead one with HD Jumper Cables, it will quickly boil the dead one trying to charge it and of course quickly deplete itself.
