Caught a mean cold the past week. Still getting over it.
When I had a fever, I felt the usual frustration of not having any button type batteries for my digital fever thermometer. Plus, I don't have the old fashioned kind that requires shaking before using.
So, I figured, I'll buy a new, fancy kind that I press a button to quickly scan my temperature, that uses standard size AA batteries. Did get a couple of those. First, a Braun that I'm returning as found that inaccurate. Second, a brand named ReMEDies, which I like and will keep. But, despite using AA batteries, both models didn't work with rechargeables, but instead, I assume needs the 1.5V of alkalines
. So, instead of replacing all my alkaline batteries with slow discharge NiMH, looks like I'll be holding some alkalines back for next time I really need to take my temperature.
