Of course it's subjective. I'm trying to let you know how *most* consumers subjectively see this issue. So I'm speaking from a design, manufacturing and marketing perspective.
There's a certain threshold measured in terms of elasticity between effort and benefit to this problem like so many others. 2 months is a pretty fair benefit versus the effort of changing batteries, when a typical universal lasts many times that.
Here I go on my soapbox again (isn't that what you called it?) There must be a lot of room for landfill in your area for all those batteries you're throwing out. You might consider something with a little less impact on the environment.
Come on, I don't throw them in a landfill. That would just be stupid. I sit out on the front step and chuck them and little kids heads as they ride by on their bikes, and at old people driving by in their big gas guzzling 1970's Cadillacs.
