Battery draining on Nest protect sensor

I replaced the battery in nest detect sensor in one room after I received an alert that the battery was low. Three weeks later, on the same sensor, I received the same message.

What type of batteries did you use when you replaced them?  It needs to be Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA (L91) batteries, otherwise a host of issues can crop up.

Maybe I am not describing this correctly because I already received a reply that the batteries you mention are for the Nest Protect, not Detect. I don't know what they are called but I am talking about the small device on the door that detects motion. I replaced them with the batteries recommended in the Nest manual.

Terribly sorry I misread your post!  That is on me. 

okay for those sensors it would be Panasonic CR123 or Energizer CR123A lithium batteries.  

Is this what you are using?

 used Energizer 123 Lithium.  When I bought then, they told me they were the same thing as 123A.  They don't say CR on the package

I'm seeing the same problem! 11 days after relaxing the batteries (with the recommended Energizer Lithium batteries), I'm seeing that the Nest Protect is showing a low battery again. The first set of batteries lasted almost a year. This second lot, 11 days. The original batteries are still going strong in the second Nest Protect I have at home. Also nearly a year old.
