I've had mine on and running continously since April. It wouldn't be a bad idea to get replacement batteries now while you are thinking about it.

I guess it depends if you want to or not.A good thing to keep it on though is that you will have a constant temperature reading(in a book I bought it says to check the temperature every time you pass the tank).A good thing to keep it off is that you won't waste the battery.So either way I guess you would benefit but IMO I say keep it on.
