Ok, I've worked a couple of hours on a fresh set of batteries, had the 95LX off for some weeks and the batteries as well as the backup button cell were emptied. Guess it was entirely my fault to expect longer run/standby-times. Still interesting enough for the powerful Lotus 1-2-3 alone to get a PSU.

Anyway, I found your nice article about this topic.

You might want to try using Everyready Lithium AA Batteries. They will last a lot longer than standard AA batteries. They cost more, but I can usually find them on sale for about half price several times a year and I stock up on them at the lower price. I use tem in my HP-200LX and in my Omnibook OB-430.

Do you have a card inserted in your HP-95LX. If so, it may be draining your batteries faster.
