I’m not digging the departure from 2032 batteries.  Are they doing that with all future batches?

If so, I may go to the RMR if/when my 407c (about 2,500 rounds) eventually shits the bed. 

I'm not up on battery knowledge. What's the downside?

Just another battery to manage. You get the benefit of not having to remove the optic for changes though, I see it as a net gain. Even though I'll now need to manage 3 different batteries.

Thank you, sir!

I have a first gen that will be coming with my milled slide, so 2032 battery for that one. I'm thinking I'll just put replacements in the optic box they're meant for. This will be my first, so presuming I like it there will be more, but probably the V2, so this should help with the management issue.

Related question about battery shelf life. With the Holosun's claiming 5+ years, what's shelf life on the replacements? If I plan to change out the battery say every two years (presuming it lasts as advertised), should I wait to buy the new battery for a while, or just get a couple spares now, stow it and forget it until needed?

I recommend having a few spares on hand. Once upon a time I put a fresh battery into my optic at the hotel the night before training. There I was standing outside the shoothouse in Alliance the next day when I turned on my PRO to.... nothing.  I made the run on irons and then got bailed out by one of the instructors luckily having a 1/3n battery.  Sheer luck as not a lot of things use 1/3n.  

I would most certainly do it if I had the upcoming V2s from Holosun as the new battery size isn’t anywhere near as common as a 2032. 

Anyway- I got an email today that I’m lucky enough to be in the evaluation cadre for the CHPWS V4 plate. The details of it sound pretty sweet.
