    I have heard that the newest technology (organic batteries) will offer obscene charge capacity. That's probably what you were thinking about.

    Li Ion batteries have to have complex internal circuitry included though to prevent them from quite literally exploding. They have strict working conditions that they must stay within. That is why they will probably never come in regular battery sizes.

    NiMH batteries are really much safer in comparison, and not that much worse in capacity. NiMH is even better than Alkaline for many uses, such as digital cams where Alkaline's quick loss of voltage makes them seem to become dead a lot faster. NiMH has a much smoother voltage curve (starting lower though).

    Rechargeables shouldn't be used in devices that will totally drain the batteries though. Flashlights, for example. Electronics just stop working at a certain voltage whereas flashlights are just resistors that will drain everything out of the batteries.

    My nimh batteries seem to last about 20 hours before they show 1 or 2 out of 4 bars, at which point i recharge them. I'd assume this could be extrapolated to an expected life of 30 hours - they are 2000mAh.
    All manufacturers tell you not to use any type of rechargeable batteries because I guess there's always the chance that you're an idiot who'd use batteries that are not handled well and are corroded or leak over time, and then would try to blame them for your stupidity. As far as I've ever been told, there is no risk to using NiMh batteries as long as you're properly taking care of them.

    Amen brutha! Wondering why the question was even asked. A AA battery is a AA battery. Some will just last longer (more mah.) (I realize some are better than others, but you get my point.)

    I highly suggest one of these to keep your NiMH batts in good shape.

    There is one difference actually and this is the reason why they say don't use them - they get hotter.

    They're just covering themselves as they don't get super hot, but they do get hotter and so there is an increased risk of damage to the device they are in.

    I wouldnt' worry about it though, as its not a massive difference and they should be fine.
