Laser rangefinders -battery question ?

Do you see a difference in your laser rangefinders performance when the battery is 1/3 power remaining ?

Mine [nikon monarch 800] seems to perform better w/a new/hot battery .

Once my 1200 is below about 20% it's the same: reliable ranging is reduced to a shorter distance.

I've had reliable performance from my Swaro range finder right down to battery replacement on known distance objects. I've never noticed a deterioration in accuracy due to battery level.

My Swarovski works perfectly until the battery is completely used up.

Another difference between the best and the rest it seems. My Buschnell 1500 does great but does fall off some when the battery gets weak.
