Re: Using 1.2 V NiMH batteries #iEXOS-100

The mount will chew through rechargeable batteries.   If you're taking it to the field then get one of those larger powerbank / powertanks.  If its in the back yard, get a 12v power supply and an extension cord.  I bought a 12v PS off amazon 18 months ago and haven't looked back.
