Too good to pass up. Order placed
"The proprietary design of the Orbita Lithium batteries that finally emerged actually provides an output voltage of 3.6 volts, 240% higher than the 1.5 volts obtainable from normal alkaline batteries. Of course that higher voltage necessitated a number of changes in our Watchwinder circuitry but, by coupling two of these batteries together in parallel, we were able to achieve a power source with more than 10 times the battery life of our original winders which were powered with alkaline batteries. We knew this would keep our watch collector customers happy and so, at that point, we decided to supply factory-installed Lithium batteries on all of our Sparta Watchwinders. Now we happily offer a 5 year battery service life guarantee on any winders so equipped. These Lithium batteries are installed at our factory and will require no attention for at least 5 years, and probably several years more. When these batteries are finally depleted, easy to install replacements are readily available from ORBITA."
Wouldn't it be easier to get a pair of rechargeable D batteries? If these batteries are proprietary than would it be fair to say that Orbita is creating dependency on the batteries? Either intentional or not.
Perhaps you're right. I wouldn't mind an entry level dual or triple winder comparably discounted.
Ditto a dual or triple would be much better.

Just a little follow up info on the batteries. We do provide and sell replacement batteries and would appreciate if you purchased them through us. However, everyone has a choice and if you find batteries cheaper some where else, you may buy them. You just need to make 100% sure all the specs match our batteries. They are out there and cost between $18 & $22.
