Lithium Batteries
« on: January 07, 2019, 07:49:18 PM »
There sure seems to be a lot of issues with the lithium batts.....they sure do get awful warm when charging, I've noticed. Anyone ever have any issues with them?

My brother just told me he has bought Lithium D's and C's for his trail cameras and he said they work great!  Last much longer and are better in the cold.  I may look into it.
