RE: Very confused about models/Battery type

Hi.
        I made precisely the same error. The seller isn't "talking out of
his bellybutton" deliberately, but he is doing so. I was told the same,
bought on the basis of just such an email as you received, and got a V2 with
a LI-ion battery. I thought about returning it but didn't, and am quite
pleased with the unit. However, I wouldn't believe anyone who told you that
their unit used AA batteries unless they were selling it to you used or show
you a picture of the older recorder's form factor.

For instance, here's a very typical reply that I got. Is this guy (and most
of these people) just talking out of his bellybutton? (Auction is at:
<http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3095946338>)

I wrote the seller to ask whether it took 4 replaceable NiMH "AA"
rechargeables.

Here's the seller's reply:

Seems pretty clear, doesn't it? How do you explain that?
