    Ok so I got everything now, and just got back from radio shack where I bought the 2AA holder for the battery mod of yours. Question - does it matter what kind of AA batteries I use, do I need NiMH or whatever?

    edit: Ooops, for your Cactus trigger battery mod here.

    lmao... it matters NOT ONE WHIT what kind of AA batteries you use... however I like to use rechargeable NiMH batteries because they seem to last longer *and* I can always recharge them.

    I use rechargeables on everything, including my Pocket Wizards... something some people do not seem to like. They work 100% anyways, and my batteries don't kill the environment.

    Awesome!

    ok, related question -- my vivitar says to use ONLY alkeline or NiCad. I went to Radio Shack to find rechargables and they dont have any rechargable nicads or alkelines, only NiMH. Does this matter? Also, the rechargables are 1.2v and the flash says to use only 1.5v :(

    I bought a 40 pack of radio shack AA alkeline son sale for $10 so I'm good for a while, but need to know for future.

    /me goes to the air conditioned room to RTFM.

    In my Vivitar 285HV I've used eneloops (ick!) and I have used NiMH Energizers (much better). Both work fine. Again, I use rechargeables in EVERYTHING I use that needs a battery... as long as a rechargeable exists for it.

    I've not found a rechargeable battery for the Cactus V2s trigger but they last a couple thousand shots worth when started from a fresh battery, so thats not so bad.
