This Question Gets Asked A Lot...Can I Run 8AA Nimhs In The Regular Alkaline Battery Holder?

This question always seems to pop up all the time. While I never ran 8AA nimhs in my GT long enough to see how long of run time they'd give before tripping the low battery alarm, Kered has and is reporting longer run times than the stock pack due to the higher capacity AA nimhs he is using in the regular battery holder than the capacity of the stock 10 cell rechargeable pack. You also save a good bit of weight that way, because those Sub-A cells in the stock GT holder are pretty darn heavy. Here's some info from Kered on his reported run times with 8 nimhs in the regular holder...
