D12 - RADIO - Can I use
rechargeable batteries in my transmitter (Tx) ?
Yes, of course
you can, and a great many of us do so.
are a few things you need to be aware of...
standard AA Alkaline (non rechargeable) battery provides 1.5V, so if
you have 4 AA cells in your radio, it is getting 6v, or if you have
8, it is getting 12v. Clearly that is what they have been
designed to use.
AA cells on the other hand only give 1.2V, so a 4 cell system only
get 4.8V, and an 8 cell system 9.6V, so you can see that the radio
has les power when using rechargeable cells.
This is not
usually a problem, except for the fact that your radio will of
course now reach its low voltage area quite a bit sooner than if you
were using alkaline cells giving 1.5V
