just when i buy the cr-v3 pack it lasts 80 some hours and 2 lithiums
last 5 minutes.?????????? same 2 batts.????? hmmmmmmmm
maybe these were dead and returned???? the package looked like it was thru a train wreck. :shock: well i'm on a real budget but looks like the rechargables and i'll try one more time on the lithiums for backup.

Hi,

Just when being on a budget rechargables are the cheapest you can get, when buying 1800Mah NiMh they won't cost you much and when taken care off they will last you a long time.

Greetings,
Frank
