Only two possibilities spring to mind, Darryl...
- A "dud" batch of, or the wrong type of, batteries (the much more likely scenario) ...or
- Some kind of weird, current-sapping fault (warranty?) in your particular hand-held.
You should get at least eight hours from a pair of fresh alkalines.
(I slightly favour Duracell (also bulk-packaged as Procell) over Eveready, but there's not a lot in it. "No-name" bulk "specials" are a definite "No, ...NO !"
Whatever happens, I'd always start each event with a fresh pair anyway. Hang the expense.

Thanks for the reply. I will monitor the performance closer as it relates to the battery usage. If it persist, I will have to look into possibly returning it for a replacement.

Running a new set of alkaline batteries I would expect somewhere between 7-9 hours of operation (depending on how "fresh" the batteries actually are. Much less than that is certainly not normal.
I would suggest that you get a new set and actually start a timer to see how long the batteries perform. If you are only getting 2.5-3 hours then something is wrong and the unit should be returned for service.
