Lithium batteries

Withour power, my 2nd gen hub runs on regular alkaline AA batteries for only 4 hours.  Is that normal?   Somehow I expected more.


What's the experience with using lithium batteries (like those marketed as 4x or 8x advanced lithium)?  Are they recommended?   I know some other electronics I own only advise regular alkaline (not sure what the reason is), but what about the IRIS hub?  I don't see any mention of battery type in the support articles.

Re: Lithium batteries

Another update to add - my hub also does not take lithium batteries.  It just does not switch to batteries at all if I use lithium.  Anyone else has this problem?  So having only 4 hours on regular batteries is pretty sad.  Many power outages last  longer than that.
