Default Lithium rechargeable PP3s


I see that LiIon and LiPo PP3s are now available with a capacity
comparable to alkaline ones. Anyone got a recommendation for makes and
suppliers, and a suitable charger?

It's for a friend's daughter's xmas pressie - she sings and chews her
way thru primary cells in her radio mic like there's no tomorrow!

actually I have used model plane ones for some years..pressed into service

you probably need a 3 cell (11.1V) or 2 cell (7.4v) 600mAh cell pack.

rip the press stud things of the appliance and fit model aircraft type
connector.

NEVER LET THE THiNG GO FLAT or kiss the cells good bye

the biggest threat to humanity comes from socialism, which has utterly
diverted our attention away from what really matters to our existential
survival, to indulging in navel gazing and faux moral investigations
into what the world ought to be, whilst we fail utterly to deal with
what it actually is.

Have look through broadcast/film related sites. Use of Li rechargable
PP3 size batteries in radio mics was something that was moderately
popular over the last few years. But advances in electronics and
DC-DC convertors has meant most kit has now migrated to a couple of
AAA or AA batteries...

Ta for the site hint. I fairly often deal with (grown up) mics and
lapels are now always AA but handhelds still seem mostly 9V.
