The SOLO S2 ships with alkaline batteries. Of course, the unit does chew through batteries in 25 hrs of run time. Questions:
> Can NiMH be used? I see Escort sells them with a charger, but the nature of a NiHM is 1.2v per cell vs 1.5v of a standard battery. Assuming it is OK to use them, Will the voltage difference (3v vs. 2.4v to start throw the battery gauge off, and even cause some problem with the detector operation? It would save a bit of $ over time!
> How about Lithium? Lasts a long time in Camera's, and can not handle a sharp discharge in a short period of time. The SOLO S2 does not seem like it will cause this problem (similar drain to a digital camera.)
