This may be more than you want to know but,
We have been using the lego pack and assume that after a year we
may need to replace them. After season I'm going to charge up a set of
eneloop AA rechargeable and compare them to the Lego pack. The nice thing about
the eneloop's are that with a model BC-700 charger by LA CROSSE Technology you
can recondition the batteries again and again and remove most of the battery
memory problems. I have old AA recharables that have been reconditioned
and I use them in my digital camera and they work like new. Conditioning takes
days but you just have to do it once every 3 weeks or so.
Once you have the recharger the batteries are a lot cheaper than
the lego pack. I'll report back here on what I find

I have a few battery questions. There was a lot of discussion
about changing batteries and I just wanted to clarify. Did people say they
had better or worse performance when they purchased a new rechargeable battery?
And were you talking about purchasing an actual battery pack from LEGO,
not just new rechargeable AA's? Does the battery pack just sometimes wear
Also, is it bad to "overcharge" the battery? Can we plug it in at
night and leave it overnight? Some batteries can stay plugged in and they
stop charging once they are full and don't harm the battery. Is that the
case with this one?
