Default Olympus SP-350 battery problem

If anybody still has an SP-350 and NiMH rechargeable batteries work very poorly I may have found both the cause and a remedy. NiMH batteries are rated at only 1.2 volts each. So a pair of them deliver only 2.4 volts and for the SP-350 that is hopelessly inadequate.

The SP-350 needs a total of 3 volts. A non rechargeable Lithium battery is rated at 1.5 volts so a pair of them deliver the necessary 3 volts.

My SP-350 has been working just fine since I switched, a couple of weeks ago, to the Lithium batteries. Even better, I found a source of the Lithium batteries that cost only $1.50 each.
