Please stop killing the earth and get rechargable batteries.


Agreed...  The only device in which I continue to use normal AAs is my mini mag-lite, if only because the rechargeables I own now are too large in diameter to fit...

Radio Shack used to make a 8 AA battery charger that was awesome...  Not sure if they still stock them...

ETA:  The new version of the battery charger comes with a 12vDC cigarette lighter plug!  Of course, the reviews make it out to be a POS...

As far as leakage is concerned, it's a problem with all Alkaline type batteries. It's not so much a matter of if, but when and I would assume that off-brand batteries are more likely to leak sooner, especially the really cheap variants.

It's a matter of charge; as an alkaline cell discharges, the negative electrode (the zinc can) gets thinner, until it eventually perforates. One more reason to pull out the batteries if you aren't going to use your gear for an extended period. A friend of mine lost her LS-10 due to this. The more the batteries are discharged, the less time you have before they leak.

Zman.  The air called and told me that she wanted you to stop eating burritos.
