Rechargeable batteries

In July 2007 we discovered from other parents that there were rechargeable batteries available.... just not in Norway.
We did find them in Holland and ordered them. We have been using them since they arrived, about january.

The way we do it:
Lotte can use them the whole day. When she goes to sleep, we start recharging the batteries and when we go to bed, 4-5 hours later, they are mostly recharged.
So, we put them back in the processor, ready to be used the following day.

No more counting days. ("was it 3 days ago we put in new ones, or 2 ???")

Currently, may 2008, 1 of the rechargeable batteries is not working properly and is sent to the distributor to be checked. Fortunately, we just change back to the old ones...

I love my rechargeable batteries. I only use them on one side. And change out the other side every 2 1/2 days. This way I am not without sound in both ears at once.

My rechargeables only last about 10-12 hours. I have to change them around 4-6 p.m. depending on when I put them in. It is also nice that there are adaptors for the plug for different countries. I'm glad you were able to get them!
