    they should label the package with that - like
    "This product has a life spawn of one year
    That is a serious design flaw,they should have put they rechargeable battery.Why didn't they do that??

    The 3-in-1 has been available for about 2 years, and there hasn't been an enormous wave of failed batteries starting a year ago, so I think all the people that keep saying the battery only lasts 1 year are pretty much full of it.

    According to an EZ-Flash representative, they expect the battery to last at least 3 years.

    Keep raking in the money because they still have the best low cost slot 2 solution?

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    one of my EZ III finally died on monday, been about 3 years. time to see whats under the tab to identify the battery and finish up the battery replacement guide.

    The 3in1 I got 2 years ago is still working, average life time is 2-3 years.
