    No question I am going to have to get a 2nd battery for this thing....man, it drains fast....you can watch it trickle down while on....is that common? Any best practices for increasing battery life?

    Range Video giving me credit for one and I ordered a 2nd. They said no way 15 mins is normal. We shall see if new batteries fixes the issue.

    Wow....so I just realized that the percentage shown on the BP monitor is for the P2 and not the BP! Haha. Where is the battery indicator for the BP?
