HP 50g : More on best rechargeable batteries



Just an update on this topic. Thanks to the advice from members of the forum, I finally bought some AAA Panasonic Eneloop Pro batteries (900 mAh). What a difference they make: With the set of Philips 1000 mAh, I had to recharge every week with light every day use but with the Eneloops and a more heavy use of the calculator, I am already on my second week without any need to recharge (not even the low battery warning showing). It is a pity that I could not find them anywhere locally, so eBay it was.

Thanks and regards,



That still seems like your running the batteries down quickly. Are you using it heavily?

You probably know this already, but if you plug in a USB cable it will draw power from the USB port. So if you're doing your calculations at a desk and the cable doesn't get in the way, this could save on batteries.
