    Ok Nintendo has always says not to use rechargable battaries int anything they make that uses batteries. I realize it can damage the screen on a GBA (not sure why though... since you can buy rechargable packs).

    But why not on a Wavebird, it can't be because it needs 3.0 volts since a batter will only produce that for maybe the first hour or two of use.

    Any ideas? Or anyone that's used em without a problem?

    I've used only NiMH batteries on my GBA without incident. Is there a reason why you're not supposed to?

    I think because you might get an uneven charge, and it could cause a defect.

    Chris,
    I'm pretty sure if your careful with rechargeable ie keep them both at same level the fall off in charge is much better then alkaline batteries.
    I think I'm just going to use NIMH batteries, since I think it's foolish to buy new batteries all the time. Is Nintendo in league with the battery companies? [​IMG]
