I don't have a 120V outlet for my model 06016 display. How long will it run on just the batteries?

Just to clarify:
No 120 Volts ( you are in a 240V country) or just no outlet near the display?
One of the main differences with using mains connection, is the Backlight will stay on.

Another consideration with Battery only, stored data may not survive a weak battery

OK. I will assume cords of any kind are not  also viable.
Just don't use the backlight frequently. That is the power hog.
I have no exact length of time for Battery only operation, but I expect it is in Months.
DO NOT even think of using rechargeable  :p  The voltage is 1.25/ per cell vs 1.55VPC
