Good advice and I agree completely about the quality of the Maha energy
cells. Microcenter currently has 2000mah batteries on sale for $4.94 for a
four-pack, which is a good price -- especially if there's a retail store
near you. I picked up four packs of four and they've been very good
batteries so far (the ones that I've used, that is).
