    £2 here in the UK for a single 319 but to be honest I rarely use the top button anyway so I probably wouldn't notice it had gone flat.

    so i had to replace by battery today. First time ever, and i got my Surface Pro 3 pretty early after release.
    But well yeah, i don't really use it that often, and i rarely use the pen ^^

    I was shocked why my pen wouldn't work. I always tought the pen itself was passive. But well... seeing the 1.5V Battery with 0.88V left made it pretty clear where the problem lies ^^
    Ordered 2 new AAAA batteries for 3.4o so i'm gonna be finde for the next 3-5 years... or whoever is gonna use my Tablet after me, probably not gonna keep it for the next 4 years.

    I'm on battery #6. Seem to last about 2 months. Duracell ultimate's? seemed to last a little longer, but have not seen any lately.
    Use the pen every day +/- 8 hours. Never has worked great, stops a lot, then I usually just take the battery out & in. Finally stripped the threads. Fixed it with with a hose clamp holding it together. Now the pen seems? to work better! But now it wil not start the ink workspace.
