Palm IIIx battery use
I have a Palm IIIx, actually found it at the bottom of a box of "things my wife never used". So I decided to give it a try, having never used a PDA before. What I found was that these little gadgets are really cool. Then the problem. I put 2 brand new AAA batteries in the unit, and by the end of the next day, the batteries were stone dead. It was probably a total of 6 hours of continuous use. That shouldn't happen, should it?

No, that's far short of the expected battery life for a IIIx. In my limited experience with this problem, it's not expensive to repair. I used PalmMedic, or you could also check with STNE. Both have excellent reputations.
You might try another set of batteries, just in case one or both of them were bad. Or you could use rechargeables and change them every day, if you don't want to get it fixed.Jennifer
