U1602 scope U1571A Ni-MH battery pack expected service life

Question asked by JohnJ Employee on Jun 23, 2015
Can anyone give me a ballpark estimation of the expected battery life of the U1571A battery pack used in the U1602B hand held scope?

The customer brought the unit in for service a little over a year ago for battery not charging and since the U1571As were on extended back order, the customer was given a refurbished scope in lieu of waiting for a new battery pack.

Fast forward and the unit is now doing the same thing, won't charge. The customer is thinking a warranty replacement but I think he would need to purchase a new battery pack if they are not known for longevity past a year or so.
