This is depending on the settings of connection type, beacons and connection time.
Set the connection type low-power, which is the default. You can store data in the beacon and while not encrypted and is not confirmed it is by far the lowest power. The connection time is the minimum time when the device connects to the gateway even if it does not have anything to send. You lowest battery life you can accomplish is to store data in the beacon and make the connection time 15 minutes. This means that your wait time to connect to mc-Studio is between 0 and 15 minutes.

Beacon 60s Connection time 900s battery life 6.73 years
Beacon 60s Connection time 300s battery life 5.68 years
Beacon off Publish every 60s battery life 2.9 years

We have a lot of customers that measure temperature. Most measure every minute, send only based on exceptions and once every 15 minutes. That gives a battery life of more than 5 years. Some measure every 30 seconds and store the data. They then send all 30 data-points in one message and that still gives you more than 5 year battery life.

The mc-Mod110 has a much higher sleep current and the battery life is about 20 to 25% less

Hope this helps.
