My kids are using a Neo and a Solo, and are following a plan I started when i was using a Deluxe.
1.) Use the "command dot dot 7" command to set your device to interpret the batteries correctly. Use the NiCad setting- it is close enough.
2.) Use 2 sets of batteries- one being charged, one in the device.
3.) Swap every day, after your daily hot-sync. You can usually go 2-3 days on a set (I kept mine at work and left the old set in over the weekends), but NiMH like being kept as full as possible (according, at least, to most of the battery makers that make a statement one way or the other!)
With 2 Visors sharing the batteries, I have them swapping three sets, switching every other day (My kids are not really power users, and not heavy module users- at least so far!)
This worked for my Deluxe for about a year with no problems.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are at!
