    The transmitter batteries will last forever if you just use 815 and 82 but for some reason using 8 needs a lot better charge.

    Good one and now I'm waiting for a battery operated spray gun that also shoots out the flags. Something that Tim the Tool Man would have thought up

    I've tried to use the rechargeable batteries for my camera but it didn't work too well. The charger I had only charged four batteries and I couldn't keep the batteries charged fast enough to make it work.

    When you turn off the truck the batteries don't charge so it was very spuratic as to getting a full charge in the batteries by the time I needed to use them. Also once the batteries were used for a while you barely could get a few hundred pictures from them.
