1.5 Volt lithium batteries
I've seen these in AA and AAA sizes. Do you know anything about them? What sort of a charger would I need, could I use my Nitecore Intellicharger i4?

Thanks.

I believe these are primary cells - not rechargeable. They have good capacity and long shelf life.

£43 for 4 What?



Edit: The comments in that 2nd link may be of particular interest to the OP - certainly helpful in deciding if these are worth having over NiMH.

I just noticed that they require a proprietary charger. Certainly an interesting battery, but can't see myself putting them to use.

RE: 1.5 Volt lithium batteries
So the above are actually regulated lithium ion cells, not lithium primary cells, hence the cost.
