Can I use Lithium or rechargeable batteries?

Our Gamma, Trinity, Glowe and Manta lanterns have not been designed to work with lithium or rechargeable batteries. These batteries have a high output during discharge which means they can cause the lights to overheat and possibly damage electronics and LEDs. We recommend using a good quality alkaline battery such as Duracell. Cheap batteries are more likely to leak and leave a gooey mess on the contacts.

We sometimes hear of batteries not working in the Gamma due to their size - after extensive research, well forgetting to get new batteries on most trips and having to buy anything from a cheap co-op or a really expensive re-chargeable in a hurry and I've found that even batteries all labelled triple A are of varying size.
