It is pretty much assumed that the Drones run on the same power supply as their Crisis Suit companions...what that power supply does/is is Currenly Being Discussed.

Also, the Drone's TL Pulse Carbines would need a reload after a certain number of shots, but few survive long enough in battle to ever need a reload.

Pulse weapons probably don't need to reload near as often as traditional slug weapons, but the drones also make use of photon grenade launchers. Where the heck DOES it store them?

There would be some sort of feeding mechanism for the grenades... but I just don't see one. I think that drones were just a simple model thrown in with more attention to cool factor than reality. But as for working times, I'd say that a drone power core could probably sustain it for a few days, maybe even a week if it didn't do much, but that ammunition problems would probably make it battlefield ineffective sooner.
