Lives for gear

I've replaced my NiCd with a 120 mAh NiMH stack that's normally used for cordless phones and that seems to be working (been six months now, but I wanted to wait on reporting this). They are easier to track down than the Varta NiCd and in the long run I find the NiCd's aren't reliable if the keyboard is going to be idle for long periods of time. They WILL eventually leak.

That's not to say NiMH are all roses and honey. They have a limited number of charge/discharge cycles and then they are toast. The jury is still out on the long term reliability but they likely wont leak.
