I've been running Eneloop rechargeables for quite a while now and haven't had any issues, mind you I recharge them after every couple of trips involving 4 or 5 days use just in case, so I don't know how many days you'd get out of them until they're drained compared to alkalines, but recharging is cheap so I go by "it's better to be safe than sorry".

Like CostasDee, we have also been using rechargables in the B&Z for years, you get more than a week, more like two weeks out of one charge as long as you remember to turn the B&Z off over night. Laughing

Rechargable batteries only have about 1.4volts when fully charged compared to Alkaline which have 1.6volts when new, so you do get a bit more run time from Alkaline but using rechargables works out cheaper to use over a period of time.

Once either type have fallen much below the 1.2volts it's getting close to time to change them.
