*grin* That battery program is NEAT! It interfaces seamlessly into the Prefs area... and I've used it 3 times already today!

Beaming stuff to friends requires a change in battery type.

how come you had to change your batt type setting if you were using a Plat? were there troubles with the Neo receiving your beams?




I'm not using a Platinum. I have a Neo. And yes, you can not beam if you have the battery type set to anything other than alkalines. SO... to beam FROM my Neo, I had to change the battery type.

I think the key is that you swap them out every night. If you did not do this and left the batteries in , leaving the battery setting on alkaline would give you an incorrect voltage and percent remaining. As a result, you might not realize how far your batteries had drained and lose your data. Alternately, you might think you have less voltage than you actually have and switch your batteries out too soon to recharge. After all, rechargables have a limited number of recharges. I guess that I am just cheap and want to make them last as long as possible.



What I do, is use my NiMH batteries until I get the message that I need to put new ones in... then I switch them with batteries that have been charged for maybe less than a week (I'm switching batteries about every week (heavy, heavy use of my Neo), but I make sure the batteries are run down to where the Neo says change them using the NiMH setting.
