For the one-hundred sixteenth edition of the GeoGearHeads we revisit the subject of batteries (see Beta.01 and Beta.02 for the first two). The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 started with some information about Heavy Duty, Alkaline, Lithium, NiCd, NiMH, and LSD NiMH AA and AAA batteries. Then they looked at a question from Wet_Coaster about NiMH performance in cold weather. There were a couple of resources from Panasonic and a PDF by Boguslaw Pierozynski with some helpful information. LANMonkey also asked about the life and charging of NiHM batteries. They then tackled the rechargeable batteries for mobile devices – LiOn, LiPo, and Lead-Acid. Some helpful tips were shared from Lifehacker and more information is available from Battery University. They wrapped the show up talking a little about fuel cells and the Brunton Hydrogen Reactor.
