SD Connect

Can anyone tell me the benefit of putting re-chargeable batteries in the SD Connect MUX? Mine works fine without them, so never put any in.

There is also a spot for a SD Card, not sure why its needed.

Thank You

Aside from reusing batteries I am not aware of any additional benefits. The SD card slot is used to flash new firmware/updates to the MUX - you should never need to use that itf you are only using it for personal reasons.

I thought the batteries that can be installed in the C4 were for the wifi connection function from the mux to the laptop. I have always connected using the cat 5 cable so I too have never installed batteries.
