- Jan 4, 2011The Byte came with Alkaline batteries.
Alkaline are the most common batteries that people use, cheapest.
Princetontec says that the Byte will work with Alkaline or Lithium. The burn
time spec is for Alkaline.
I assume the test should be done with Alkaline.

Has anybody tried NiMH cells? You'll only get about 2.4V total but their output
curves are much better than alkalines. There's also disposable lithium, which
put out 1.5+V for extended periods (but are expen$ive).
I'm very interested in what y'all find out.
