Topic: Rechargeable batteries

Hello from Russia! Thanks for amazing device! All great,but rechargeable butteries not use. Slot size is small for them.  Their diameter a little more than ordinary batteries. What to do? Thanks and best regards!

Re: Rechargeable batteries

Hi MacLoud,

Unfortunately there's not much that you can do besides look for a rechargeable battery brand that has a thinner diameter than other brands.

I do have a group of rechargeable Radio Shack Nickel-Cadmium batteries that fit rather well and SolaCell NiMH rechargeable batteries fit well too. One thing to take into account is that the rechargeables don't charge up to the standard AA voltage of 1.5V and therefore will drain faster than ordinary batteries.

I have also tried removing those plastic guides and even sanded the sides before and it does help a bit but that's up to you whether or not you want to go that far.

However, one TranzPort might be marginally bigger or smaller than others and yours might just be one that is marginally smaller in the battery compartment. It's possible that your same batteries may fit in another TranzPort.
