K10 debug & battery life?

I have recently accquired FA43 and was hoping it would complete my line up.
Problem is that it bacfocuses. My K10 is set to +120 which is spot on for 31ltd and 40ltd but 43 needs +200 to hit the sweet spot wide open.
So, if I'll keep the camera permanently in debug, how does it affect the battery life?
Or shall I just stick with my triedd and tested DA40 and sell 43?
Getting 2nd body is not an option as they are expensive. Getting K20 is not an option as I don't like the colors of the Samsung CMOS as much as the colors of the Sony 10mpx CCD.
I could use my wife's GX20 but I'd have to carry 2 bodies and struggle with the colors.
So again:
How does permanent debug mode on with K10 affect the battery life?

TIA
Peter

PS: I have a grip with 2nd battery

My K10d is in perpetual debug mode (it activated all by itself after I upgraded my firmware to 1.3)... doesn't seem to affect it's battery life.

Your other option is to send all your Pentax lenses and camera to Pentax. They will dial in each lens to fit your camera for a small cost.

thought about it too, but I'm really short of cash right now, and it would be between 50-100 including postage which isn't exactly small cost for me...
