Nicads / NiMH
Rechargeable batteries, available in a variety of sizes and capacities.
Save money and help the environment by using rechargeable batteries - not only in your handheld radio but around the home as well.
Over the past few years the capacity of rechargeable batteries has increased 5 fold. Standard AA batteries used to be around 500mAh, now you can get over 2500mAh for the same price!
The new NiMH batteries not only have a higher capacity than the NiCd version they replace, but they also do not suffer from the same "memory effect".
