handspring says that you should use alkaline batteries, but I have the Ray-O-Vac recharger and i would like to know what rechargable batteries are safe on a Visor. Chris

Subject: Battery Drainage

Recnetly, my Visor is draining batteries like crazy. They used to last weeks before a change was required. Then, suddenly my batteries would last only a week. Now, I luck if I get three days out of a new pair. I cannot find where there are any alarms set that is precipitating this problem. Sound familliar to anyone. Is there a cheap fix or should I shop for a new/better PDA? Thanks.

This stared happening to me about 6 months ago. My batteries used to last a month but are now dead in a couple of days.I haven't found any solution and the Handspring folks were no help, they suggested the usual - turn off beaming, sounds etc.

Subject: Visor Battery - Rechargeables

I recently purchased a Visor deluxe (love it!) and called Handspring (at 5:30 a.m. California time no less) to ask about using rechargeables. The helpful operator said that it is OK as long as you do not let them run out completely as NiMH batteries will cut out at once thus not giving the system time to back up data. This could result in the loss of all data. Apparently, alkaline batteries die a slow death so the system knows to back up. Anyway, as long as you recharge the batteries before they die you should be OK.
