Default Sony's 3D Glasses Are Now Available at $150

Sony states 100 hours of battery life, but you'll have to replace them when they run out since these don't recharge.

They will use a CR "coin" style lithum battery which are widely available and usually cost less than a buck a piece.

So far, only XpanD uses a proprietary battery

The way Sony has the write up on their site makes it sound like proprietary crap.

If these use CR123 batts or the like then yeah, that's not bad

Haha, for a minute I thought the entire pair of glasses needed to be replaced rather than just teh battery. I was going to freak out.

Anyway, replaceable batts is not the best but since it's the case for a lot of products (remotes, etc.), as long as they aren't proprietary it ain't too bad.

Only 100 hours?

Heck, once 3D gets going, i'd have to be changing my batteries once every few months. Gimme a freakin' break.

Sounds like a good idea (on the battery solution).

Yes, as long as it's a commonly-available battery, this is smart.

No. You know what a "f'ing joke" would be: having purchased $900 worth of 3D glasses (6 pairs), inviting friends over for a movie, then realizing 5mins into the presentation that you forgot to put 3 of the pairs on the charger.

THAT would be a "f'ing joke".

(Note: I'm not planning at this point to buy $900 worth of 3D glasses & upgrade the TV, Receiver, etc. However, if I was one who did, this would be an example of a product where having built-in rechargeable batteries would NOT be advantageous.)
