How long will it take for the device to stop reading tags?

Daryl,

I assume you are referring to a handheld RFID reader when you say “locator,” as fixed readers are usually plugged into an electrical socket. As a battery wanes, a handheld’s read range tends to become shorter, since there is less energy to emit. The device will eventually stop reading tags once it runs out of battery power.
