What are you guys using in your e-callers? I was told to use rechargeable batteries and that they would definately outlast the other batteries. Please let me know. Thanks

I use Energizer rechargeable batteries in my foxpro, they are 2300mAh and come with a charger. I got them at giant eagle.

Just remember that rechargeable batteries are only 1.2 volts, not 1.5, so you are losing a little voltage initially. You shouldn't have any problems, however, if you purchase good quality batteries. I would also recommend to keep a good set of AA's with your hunting gear anyway, just in case.........

I use the Foxpro 2300mAh NiMH batteries, and they are 1.2v. I have an extra set loaded in a battery pack for the call ready to go if I need them, only ever needed them when I forgot to charge between uses. When I first got my fx-3 I used regular alkaline and it ate them up like candy, so I asked around and was advised to go with rechargeables. No problems since.

I've been using the Sanyo Enloops now for a few years and get a fantastic run time (varies with temps). My wife is a professional photographer and runs the Enloops in all of her cameras/flashes as well.
