Charge NiMH batteries in the 100LX? 100/200LX

I use NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries and charge them in the HP 100LX, using BATSET to set the high charge time to 14 hours. This gives me more than 20 hours of life for the HP 100LX, or about a week's usage.

[Editor's note: Because of potential hazards, including exploding and leaking hazardous chemicals, Hewlett Packard does not recommend or support recharging any other type of battery in the 100/200LX, only Ni- CADs.

There have been many discussions on CompuServe as to the value and dangers of using NiMH's on the HP Palmtops. Jan and others have experimented and reported good results using NiMH batteries with no problems.

We publish this tip solely to inform our readers of other users experiences, and not as a recommendation. You will have to decide whether the benefits outweigh the potential risks -- Robert.]
