Just how long would a Tough Solar battery last before the rechargeable battery needs replacement? 10 years? 20 years?
If you search this forum you'll find many different answers as we've discussed this topic many times. But truth to be told no one realy knows for sure. Technology simply hasn't been around long enough.Just how long would a Tough Solar battery last before the rechargeable battery needs replacement? 10 years? 20 years?
+1 for the Rasin riot.I'd say the highest probability is that the tough-solar storage battery will last longer than the resin. :roll:
I say this purely because I have a DW-5600C whose resin bezel has turned, essentially, to dust. Yet it is still on its original battery, which will actually still fire the little light on the side (before EL) without pushing the watch into reset mode.
I'd much rather see Casio come out with more all-metal G's (digital versions) than keep playing around with ABC's and tough-movements and all that. 'Course, based on recent events, they'd probably cost a fortune. BUT, I wouldn't bat an eye to pay more for a metal-digital G that I know is going to outlast its batteries.
Sorry, rant mode off.... where was I? :rodekaart
Resin certainly does not have THAT problem. However, I'm not sure all the metal bracelets have that problem. I have several metal-braceleted watches that have seen plenty of wear and do not look like c**p.On a subject of Metal G: Also +1 but there is a cavet... while metal braclet is completely imnue to "Rasin riot" it's also one that will look like a "total c.ap" as little as 6 month after purchase because of scraches that will pick along the way... Rasin does not have this problem.
