Some of my gadgets, notably a shaver and a TV remote, seem to work better with alkaline rather than NiMh batteries. I have a weather station that instructs me not to use "rechargeable" batteries.
Can I assume that the difference is the higher voltage provided by alkaline batteries and that the weather station would be content with rechargeable alkaline batteries?
And a few more questions if I may- When would I use NiMh batteries in preference to rechargeable alkaline ones?
What is the difference between NiMh and alkaline chargers?
My mains powered alkaline battery charger has a switch to set alkaline or NiMh. What does changing the switch position do?
My USB powered alkaline battery charger does not have a similar switch. How does it "know"? .
And yes, I have Googled but was overwhelmed by information on recharging _non_-rechargeable alkaline batteries.
