The voltage difference is rarely an issue due to the way the voltage degrades over time in different batteries. Standard Alkaline AAs tend to drop from 1.5V to about 0.9V over their lifetime, so you're rarely actually getting 1.5V anyway. Rechargables tend to stay at around 1.2V till they die, then they just drop off suddenly. Which means it's harder to tell how long you have left on a rechargable. Also rechargables work better under high current drain than alkaline batteries (as in you get more of the available capacity).Big G said:Rechargables will no doubt be fine (although AA recharge batteries are 1.25v as opposed to 1.5v iirc?), but you'd need 12 to rotate them for when 6 run out mid cpl final .
There is a perceptable lag in many of todays wireless products - the MX900 and for that matter, the whole of the diNovo is almost entirely lag-free however.RandomBastard said:I have a dream, and in that dream i see the desktop being furnished entirly by wireless. I see keyboard and mice and mics all bluetooth, i see tft screens powered by a cradle and batteries so there portable. I see wireless printers and i see wireless speakers. I have a dream today.
It's 4 batteries in the keyboard, 2 in the media pad... so far mine have lasted 2 months and still going strong. There are two other batteries which are rechargable and go into the mouse.Jonty said:Six batteries certainly is a lot I believe the mouse recharges itself in its cradle, though, so that's something
Do you know if recharagable batteries perform as well? I recall totting up the expense of buying some proprietary rechargable batteries and a charger for something, against the cost of supplying it with 2x AA batteries for a year. Turns out I could have saved myself around £1,000
