I just use the NiMH AA's. I got the 8 cell holders from RS locally - no
problem. But I use a 10 cell pack I got from the mail order place that I
picked up the NiMHs from. I carry two sets of those and a charger. You
can charge one set faster than you will use a set so they are always
ready. The 10 cell NiNH give you about 12-13 volts and holds it until the
batteries are gone. So you don't loss power with them as you operate.
With a rating of 1500-1700 mAH they should last you a good long time in
the field with the DSW rigs before they need to be recharged.
is where I got the 10 cell holder - they have the others as well. The
