    Recommendations please for flashlights that can use 1.5 volt aaa lithium rechargeables.

    Li ion batteries usually charge to 4.15-4.2V, then with use they then come down to their nominal working voltage of 3.6-3.7V

    How do you think of charge to 4V or 80% capacity?

    I use a UP100ac+ and you can adjust the level of amps charging or draining and set the cutoff min. If you tell it to charge to store, it will be 3.65v and turnoff.

I guess they're all right. I don't like that they do not list the cells CDR. So important. They look good, pricey as...

    I'm trying find out if the Li ion pack has a charger that can use the charging port in ur radio. NiCD like 1.2-1.5V, NiMH is .2-.5V, and Li ion is 3.8-4.2V.....hopefully I'll find, worse case , instead of a dedicated charger like this
