They are not available retail in USA yet.
I saw them in Amazon.com.UK
Oh well, I'll just use the eneloops I have or the lithium non-recharging.

I've been using Energizer NI-MH 2300 mAh batteries, they don't last long, even around the house while messing with the unit without plugging it in for usb power. I'm not impressed with them, no wonder they're cheap.

I'd hazard a guess that good alkalines last as long as these things. I'll have a better idea soon enough, going for a day of caching next Sunday (1 week). I haven't even put the lithiums in it yet, saving them for a special occasion or extended bush trip. at ten bucks a pair, I'll hold onto them for a bit....

I am using eneloop 2,000 mha in my eXplorist 610 and am getting no more than 4 hrs life out of each charge. I am using a "quick charge" charger, however when I put the batteries in the unit the battery indicates full power. I have the power setting to "Rechargeable". I am using the backlight on full blast.

btw - is there a way to find out how much %age power there is left on the batteries?

What model? Are you a Magellan insider? If you are, a badge is in order... To the left, in that little carousel thing is the kind I use, Eneloops. They're great because they keep their charge forever, so they can be left in a backpack until you need them.

If you are using a GC, use lithium and set the timer for the light and power to a shorter time limit.
Set the battery type to the type of battery you are using. Otherwise the indicator will give bad readings.
Go to tools--settings--power.
I have found the GC batteries last longer than any other GPSr I've used.
I usually get at least 8 hours of continuous use with lithiums and at least 6 hours with alkaline.
To save batteries turn the unit off when you really don't need it.
