Sooooo: I have a John Lewis portable digital radio (30.00). The sound is *great*, and it has a nice simple unpretentious style about it (looks-wise and functionality-wise).
However I can't get it to work portably: my batteries won't power it. On checking the manual again, I find it requires 4x 1.5V AAs. (On checking the batteries) I find I've been using rechargeable 1.2V (2500mAh) NiMH AAs (which I suppose are quite old by now).
Sooooo: I've decided I need to buy some new batteries. Before I go looking for rechargeables that will give me 1.5V, are there any *types* that I should be looking out for? NiMH was all the rage when I last bought rechargeables, but I suspect there are all sorts of new types about these days.
Any advice gratefully received,
