i have a set of eneloops for my tejon at full charge it makes only 3 beeps,now i dont even use them because you need at least 6 beeps.if you find some rechargable that will make it have at least 6 beeps let me know because ill buy some.really the eneloops wont charge high enough for the tejon,but are fine for other detectors hope that this helps.

I have a UK version of the Vaquero rather than use the one 9v battery it came with the Tejon battery box to provide the extra power which is of course 8x.1.5v=12v but by using 'rechargeable batteries' which makes 8x1.2v=9.6v so you straight away have a reduced battery power,i prefer to use Energizer alkaline batteries and they just keep going and going.

The Tejon may still work with 9.6v but for me i dont want too 'penny pinch' on taking a chance with possible reduced performance.

Some of my detectors namely the Nexus machines those can run on 'rechargeable batteries' as when you run those detectors on full power they can exhaust a set of batteries in no time,but thay also have a onboard battery charger as well.I can top them up during the day if need be with a in car inverter but as yet not had too do this.

A stick with a plastic ring at one end and an eternal optimist at the other!
