Two rechargable AA cells, utilized to the maximum. What a beautiful design! The only thing I think Gary possibly could improve on is to include two good NiMH rechargables to keep people from feeding it by alkalines (very poor results if you use alkalines).
you're not the only one. i asked him after i got the amp. he answered me with this:
The only thing the amplifier does not include is the two AA
rechargeable batteries. I have always wanted to include the
batteries charged and loaded in the amp, this way when a person
received their amp they could just turn it on and it would be
ready to go.
What makes including the batteries a disadvantage has to do
with the post office's weight limits. The limit for the first
category of the Airmail shipping service is at 250 grams. The
extra cost of going into the next higher category if batteries
are included is almost as much as the batteries themselves.
Because of this, it is probably cheaper to get a pair of
batteries in your area.
