    Is it possible to get the batteries mentioned in the subject and if so,
    where?

    As you were - these are NiMH or NiCad, not alkaline...

    I very much doubt it. Not Alkaline batteries.

    Try looking for some decent nimh rechareable batteries.

  6. Did see some last year in a Gold Coast supermarket. Left them though. Their
    voltage was 1.5, but I recall their capacity was lower than NiMh.

    Didn't The Warehouse here offer a recharger which charged all types
    (including non-rechargeable). Battery Doctor?

    Good Luck

    Eveready have them and you should be able to get them at the battery stand
    at your local Pak & Save or an electronics shop worth patronising.

    I have several here.

    I try very hard not to buy disposable batteries because they are such
    shockingly poor value.

    I meant NiMH......They aren't alkaline....but they do support the high-drain
    digital devices like cameras and other stuff.

    I have never seen rechargable alkaline. NiMH is probably what you want.
    I got some batteries and a charger from ecobatteries.co.nz Good
    product, price and service

    There is a chap who has been selling rechargeable Alkalines at the Ham sales
    for quite some years.
    He goes under the name of 'PM Distributors Ltd' PO box 27-557 Mt Roskill
    Auckland. Phone 09 625 0020
    (well he did 12 years ago)

    From the leaflet I have:
    *Rechargeable more than 100 times
    *Full 1.5 volts (not 1.2 volts)
    *Greater capacity than Ni-Cads
    *Lower cost than Ni-Cads
    *No Memory effect
    *Shelf life of charge - 2 years
    *Enviromentally friendly

    Note the leaflet is some 12 years old also, it was enclosed with a set of
    AA's and charger I bought.
    Never used them, but Ted ZL1TM tried them and said they did what they were
    supposed to do.

    Cheers
    Paul.

    I haven't seen the rechargable alkalines for some time. A mate of mine went for
    them when they first came out and they turned out not to live up to
    expectations (specs), not at all. Only recharged a few times before dying,
    didn't hold charge well. Need a special, different charger from nicad and nimh
    as well.

    They may well have been discontinued. If anyone knows, it'll probably be Ian
    Jenkins of ecobatteries.co.nz

    h.t.h., -Peter

    Yes. I have one, and it seems to work with alkalines. Recharge them all the
    time.
