Haven't heard of one that uses a pile of D cells as they wouldn't be rechargeable would they? Is it your job to replace them if needed?Terry

The tech said that the original backup batteries, that look like a lead acid type, only lasted about 8 hours before needing a recharge. He said the D cells are good for about 36 hours. We are fortunate to live in an area that seldom looses power, and when we do, it is usually back on in a few hours.
