Hi all-

I am attempting to create another tiny amp... but I am in need of tiny rechargeable batteries. I have been looking for hours... but haven't had much luck. So, I thought maybe you all could help... The maximum size of these little suckers would be 15mm W x 20mm L x 25mm H. I also need AT LEAST 150mAH.... but would prefer much > 200mAH, if possible. 1.5V is possible... if the case size is small enough so i can series some of them... but I would prefer 3V and above.

I would like lithium... they would defintely have the current... but those cost a fortune and are not rechargeable. So... any suggestions? Or can lithium be recharged safely?

Can alkaline, manganese dioxide, silver oxide, zinc air, or carbon zinc be recharged with much success?

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Lithium batteries cannot be recharged.

Lithium ION batteries can be recharged.

some alkalines can be recharged, you loose at least 5% capacity on
every recharge.

The rest are non-reversable chemical reactions.
