I get probably 3-4 months per set of batteries in mine, and I am an inveterate channel surver so it gets a lot of use. By contrast my wife probably gets 6-9 months from hers, she will watch the same channel for hours, never touching the remote.
As Keyboards asked, what kind of batteries are you using? And have you checked the expiration date on them? I have been using Kirkland brand batteries from Costco for several years, they seem to last pretty good in everything I have put them in.

Keyboards, I appreciate your enlightening education in the cheaper quality "heavy duty" batteries. I had no idea the battery set included with my new Fios remote was also the same lesser quality batteries.
Your extra personal info about swapping remotes is also very helpful. I'm growing more confident that alkaline is my simple solution.
