According to jkirk, you make damn sure it's got a long Fuji like dc connector on it, to break the internal batt pack, else you risk firing up your internal NimH's (if discharged) and blowing the 602's internal 2.5amp fuse!

The smart money would be on an external pack with say a 1.5 amp fuse! VOX

i'm thinking, if i have an external pack i can remove the AA's so it's a bit lighter

thanks again vox!

Don't forget if you leave the batts out for a very long time, I think the memory capacitor eventually discharges and you lose date/time + any user setups. Sorry, but I can't remember how long that is. If my batts weren't in the cam, I'd have to re-learn holding it! I see 2300mah AA NimH's are around now in UK.

I also see that some people are using AA non-rechargeable lithiums for emergencies, cold weather and storing in cam for long periods. At first I was a bit nervous about the 1.5-1.8 volts, but NHL recons the cam dc-dc regulator is more efficient. VOX
