3-Beeps I still hunt, 2-Beeps I change it.

Oh, it might last for while, but if I turn a Tesoro on and only get 2-Beeps I change it so I don't run that 9V lower while enjoying a hunt. I never hold out until only 1-Beep except when I have intentionally been comparing battery brands.

The good thing is if you use a fresh, quality, high-performance 9-Volt alkaline battery, you will get a lot of run-time out of one. All my other detectors are either Li powered or I use NiMH AA rechargeables. I do have some food AA Alkaline as back-up that I also use in my flashlights. For 9V powered detectors, I only use proven Alkaline batteries, and swap them out when I get 2-Beeps.
