Higher capacity NiMH AA Batteries

I'm current rooting around among my boxes again...looking for the pieces necessary to do a backup of my laptop computer. Haven't done one since I moved, and would be nice to get one done before I next take my laptop out of my home.

While digging around, I found my old Siemens Gigaset 2410....decided I would see if it would work until the multi-handset unit I have coming arrives.

This was an okay phone....I used to have it on my office phone, thinking that it would be handy to deal with calls away from my desk....like in the computer room. But, it never actually got used. I suppose the nice thing about its design was that it took regular AA batteries. It came with NiCd, but I had long ago replaced them with NiMH....1600mAh ones. And, it was adequate for how I used it.

But, since the batteries had gone completely dead while in storage, I thought that maybe I'd go looking for my higher capacity NiMH batteries for it instead.

I found a nice matched pair of 2300 mAh batteries....my LaCrosse charger had them as 2.25 and 2.26 Ah....except they wouldn't fit. But, these are AA batteries....aren't all supposed to be the same?

Well, evidently in the quest to cram more juice into the same diameter/length package...they decided to cheat by making the positive terminal shorter. And, the Siemens phone has a goof proof holder that expects the positive terminal to be of the 'correct' length, etc. Oh well, hopefully the old batteries still work.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
