Cheers Dave. I'll keep that in mind. I wasn't too happy with the performance of the rechargeables but the Duracell seemed great value for money so if I can bulk buy in a sale I'll be even happier  Grin

I must admit I've never seen Duracell rechargeables. Perhaps it's like my detecting and I'm just not looking hard enough  Cheesy I'll keep a look out for them.

I think I've found the ones for my Quattro. They are on offer too. I think I'll wait for Paul (Waltonbasinman) to tell me if they are any good for my  Suzie Quattro though.

You are right Al, a few rechargeables seem to be a bit bigger than ordinary alkaline.

looks good. Have to see what the postage is though. What detector do you use Al? Seems a heck of a pain having to dig a screwdriver out every time.

The main problem with NMHydride batteries or even Cadmium in that they are under powered.
The type I had was only 4.8v  for the 4 instead of 6v as the ordinay ones.

I solved that problem by mounting a six sized holder on the outside of my detector and blanked one off with a piece of copper wire from negative to posotive and loaded  5 NMHydrides

Even then the batteries were below par but better in the end. Regard the volts as the engine and the MaH as the petrol and there you have it. The higher the Mah the longer the batteries will last.Those you see are 2350 MaH, quite different to the 700's when they first came out years ago.

arr thats interesting Charles,  if i tried that i'd proberbly blow myself up lol,
 yeah they are usually less than the usuall power too,
 i just checked my 9v, and its 200 mah   and don't last long,  my penlights dont last a week either, not sure what mah they are though.

As I used the AA type I am not familiar with the 9v type but it is worth asking about the rechargable 9v. They may come in larger capacity, and you can test them every day for capacity, Alan.

 I sent away for 2 packs of these Durecell on Wednesday Charles on your advice about the longer power in the higher m.a.h ,  they came this morning  they are much higher than the ones i had at 2.650 mah,  the others were 1300.

i ordered 2 packs x 4,
that was 14, 25  inc, tax and postage, while they are on offer,   i looked at the Argos catalogue  and they wanted
11.65  just for one pack of 4,  23. 30    for 2 pACKS ,   so thats a good deal,
