Smart Rads power by rechargeable lithium ion AA batteries

Hi I just wanted to to share some tips that we can use the rechargeable lithium ion AA batteries. We can't keeps on replacing the alkaline AA as it only last about 6 months.
I bought some Kentli brand it it does the job.
It is still in the early days to see how long it last before indeed to recharge them. But I am hopeful that we could all contribute to save the planet.

  • This should be an absolute must. Any rechargeable batteries with do for me.

  • Don't treat this as gospel but I believe that due to the different way Alkaline and Lion batteries discharge fitting a Lion battery to a device designed for an Alkaline would 'confuse' its ability to report how much capacity is left.

    I would not expect this to prevent using them but you might have to ignore its estimate of charge left.

  • Hi guys,

    thx Mytada for bringing up the lithium discussion. I was thinking myself about it too. I mean 1.5 Volts, same as the alkaline batteries, but rechargeable!

    However Jelockwood brings up a good point with the discharge current. Tado gives only the advise to take "any" alkaline batteries, but I couldn't find anything about an appropriate discharge. But as there are Lithiums out there with 1.180 mAh as well as up to 3.000 mAh, it should be possible to find a suitable option, shouldn't it?

    I would love to hear new insights about your test run, Mytado.

    Kind regards, Mark
