Should potential buyers be warned in advance of buying an EPIRB what the ongoing costs will be?I had the same problem before, again the batteries were in a pack and I could not work out how the voltage was achieved until I took the pack apart and found one was merely a dummy.

In my case its a non GPS epirb, new ones are available at not much more than the replace battery cost so I will buy new if I cant find a sensible solution to replacement batteries..

I stripped down the epirb, breaking the seal of course and the batteries were 4 'D' type batteries wired in series. If you do try to replace your own batteries don't forget the the battery pack contains a read switch to disconnect the battery when the epirb is in its carrier. Assuming your reply is not tongue-in-cheek, one could go on like that for ever and most of us would never be sailing at all . I did the same when I had a Jotron epirb with my last boat - allbatteries were the peopl I used as well.
