@BalooUriza Yeah, packing the connector, charge controller and battery cell into the same form factor as a AA is pretty crazy.
this reminds me that at some point I had a battery pack for the Game Boy (I think it was Ni-Mh): it replaced both the cover and the batteries, and had an additional power port for intermittent charging, using the same power supply as the Game Boy. I think it was a very clever design.
@jefftheworld I need to get AA and have been seriously considering these. What's your experience with them been like? Length of charge, reliability, any manufacturers you'd recommend? 🔋🔋🔋🔋
@Taris @jefftheworld I'm excited because they advertise 1.5V, most rechargeable are down at 1.2 or 1.3! Do you happen to have a multimeter handy..? :)
I wabt to use rechargeables for a few gadgets at home but can't because they can't deliver the needed voltage.
Would love a link also if you don't mind sharing. These look nice.
@jefftheworld @Taris Do those regs affect freight?
I figure it's probably a flights thing. I don't buy on Amazon anyway but if they use planes to ship from UK->IE I'm better off not ordering, yikes. There are Irish battery shops, maybe one of them does these thingies. Would love a set for a portable piano that's currently on Alkalines.
