Hello, ASAAR:

That's a bit similar to the way my KAA2HR rechargeable Ni-MH (2100
battery packs work. The KAA2HR (exclusive to Kodak devices) consists
two AA cells, bundled together; upon insertion, it pushes down a tiny
switch, located in the battery compartments of compatible "EasyShare"

When the camera is mounted on a Kodak dock, this switching action
allows the KAA2HR to be charged. If regular cells (even rechargeable
ones) are inside, they won't charge. (A nice safety feature, in the
of alkalines.)
