Subject: Very confused about models/Battery type

Very confused about models/Battery type

Hi, new subscriber, please pardon the newbie question but I've been reading
the list archives for a few hours and am still unclear on something.

I've been shopping for a still-in-package 20GB AJR on eBay. Pretty much
everything I find looks like the V2/FM form factor, however some of the
descriptions say specifically that it takes NiMH "AA" batteries & comes
with them - I've even contacted some sellers and they confirm this. Is this
possible? If I buy one of these will I get it and find that is, in fact
Li-Ion only?

Confusing the issue, they seem to freely mix and match the "V2" and
"Special Edition" in the model names. Whether they use either of those
terms, or neither, seems to have nothing to do with the batteries they
claim they take, and, like I said, allll the pictures show the newer,
sleeker form factor.


Can anyone shed any light before I buy something that's not exactly what I
want? Based on what I've read I would GREATLY prefer the NiMH AAs. Are all
the sellers that claim that's what I'll get mistaken?



The great thing is, over the internet, nobody knows I'm a dog.
