Will say that is pretty interesting that it takes either 2 or 4 c cells. It
appears they parallel the C cells for more time. In eco mode 2 batteries 3
years or 4 batteries 6 years. Run time will vary depending on the batteries
leaking in 3.5 years. At least it seems that way today. (Not to trigger a
left turn in the discussion)
All in all looks like a nice arrangement.
