Quote:You might want to try using Everyready Lithium AA Batteries. They will last a lot longer than standard AA batteries. They cost more, but I can usually find them on sale for about half price several times a year and I stock up on them at the lower price. I use tem in my HP-200LX and in my Omnibook OB-430.

I was using these in my HP-200LX as well, they do last a lot longer. However they have a very flat discharge voltage profile, dropping to zero very rapidly at the end of their life. This results in the low battery indication being shown for a very short time before the cells are completely dead. I didn't like that and switched back to alkaline cells.
