    Eneloop 1.2v rechargeable batteries in MX Sport

    I am of the understanding that the MX Sport is designed for 1.5v AA batteries.

    Well, I prefer to run rechargeables for obvious reasons.

    I have 16 new gen Eneloop 1900mah 1.2v rechargeable.

    Will running a 1.2v battery hurt the machine being it is rated at 1.5v per cell?

    I mean outside of the battery display indicator showing 3 bars instead of 4 even though the batteries are full?

    I know many who run the Eneloops in their various machines and have no problems but want to be sure.

    ...sorry if this was covered before in the feeds. I couldn't find it and am kinda new to the forums.

    Thanks in advance

    Thank you. I love my MXS and the last thing I want to do is hurt her.

    What Fox said.
    I too prefer rechargeable batteries, and use them in everything I own that can use them efficiently.

    Much of my hunting will be combined with distance, multiday backpacking trips(I have permits covered.)

    I have some serious solar charging capabilities. Granted the MXS has solid run time but want to keep it simple.

    Simple works much better for me.

    I know exactly what you’re talking about. I use to go on hunting trips with a few universities and we’d hike for several days before getting to our destination. Those kind of hunting trips are very fun to do. When I was going on those trips, I modified my V3i to work with external battery packs just for I’d have more hunting hours per pack and less weight in my backpack. Well have fun and good luck on your expeditions. I hope you find some super targets.

    Its pretty hard to hurt them. I'm one of the least careful humans on the planet. Snapped many a digger/shovels. Mx has taken my abuse and just asked for more.

    I'm a trail maintainer here with the DCNR(Pa.)
    I am all over the place.

    A lot of travelling was done here in the hills. Should be interesting. I can find a spot here that many folks haven't touched for a very long time and setup camp.

    Hunt an area for multiple days.

    Lol Tp, I expect a lot out of my gear. Was a tester for backpacking and mountaineering gear for years.

    When it comes to any electronics I baby them.

    The best part is being such a careful human being, I went to school for glass art haha.

    Hi My Fellow TH'ers
    I have a set of PowerGenix 1.6 volt 2500 mWh, NiZn rechargeable batteries. I use to use them in my DFX and they lasted quite well. I did have a few that failed after being used a few times so PowerGenix reimbursed me for the ones that failed.
    I will give these a try the next time I get out for a day of TH'ing. I will give a report after a try. Stayed tuned! ;-) Dave
