    Weight: NiHM vs. NiZn

    Hi everyone, I'm an EDCer, and batteries are one of the things I carry in my backpack. I carry NiHMs for my Quark AA^2. I've realized lately that my batteries (4xAAs) are a pretty fair amount of weight considering how small they are. NiHMs seem to be much heavier than other chemistries like...
