    Resurrecting an old post ... I was in Home Cheapo tonight to pick up stuff and plunked down over $50 for three packages of Energizer's "new and improved" Lithium batteries. I was overdue to replace my AA-fed pins, so an upgrade they will get!

    Considering a remote battery pack sets you back $12+ It think this is a fair compromise, and keeps things looking stock.

    Incidentally, anyone else ever personally have a Lithium puke?

    Quoted from johnwartjr:

    Remote battery packs cost about 1-2 bucks if you make your own 10-20 units at a time. It's not a hard thing to make.

    John, you've been around a long time. Penny-tech remote packs are a viable option - I just never went that route ... I'm curious what you think about long-term solutions like NVRAM or Lithium Batteries (coin or new aa replacements)

    Thanks John. Very good info here. Never knew about the RTC.

    I'm testing out NVRAM in my Centaur. No complaints so far.

    Putting the Lithiums in my DMD games for now. May slowly migrate to NVRAM.

    Quoted from cal50:

    I would NOT recommend Duracell's. I had some new ones leak (2016 date) in 3 different devices.
    Whirlwind, Logitec mouse and my Hensoldt scope illumination device.
    If its an expensive and hard to replace item like night vision or electronic equipment I will stick with Lithium AA batteries. I never had an issue with Energizer brand and will use them and my disposible AA power source.

    Good to know Cal ... loaded all my DMD pins with Energizer Lithiums last night.
