Brill - just got 6 aaa out of a PP9!

Edit - not so brill - they are slightly too short and a little thinner than aaa.

Oh well

Not tried the lamp battery though - don't have one of them lying around!

I just cracked open the battery in the back of the 335 and found 1200 AAA rechargables. Sorry, forgot to take a pic before putting it back together again

Don't say things like that, Carlos will be taking his apart, that is assuming that he can find the battery in the 335d!
