Re: Pilot: Batteries-Rechargable
Oops, that didn't occur to me at the time. I'll give Voltage Control a try - hope it doesn't have too many 'nag' screens until I register!

Obviously BM 'thinks' you're a more heavier user, that's why it makes 400mAh from the time you use the Pilot with one charge of your NiCad, which is obviously only 220mAh (I doubt they deliver really nearly double their nominal capacity).
>For all other NiCad/NiMH users I might again note, that BM is a nice program to track your battery usage and predict roughly when to change. But the optimal app for getting the right first warning at i.e 2.3V when using rechargeables is VoltageControl. It's a little hack, working unspectacular in the background, but it's able to change the warning levels *permanently* (well, as long as it's running <g>) for rechargeable needs.
