Yep. I just invested a few hundred into trail cameras that need 8 AA at 1.5 volts, not 1.2 volts. I did find 2x18650 cameras from china, ordered 3, but time will tell.I need recommendations for a high quality rechargeable 1.5v AA Lithium for security cameras.
Have you thought about creating external battery packs & using a weatherproof plug? Maybe even a 12v UPS type battery with a voltage converter. Interested in the quality of the 18650 cameras.Yep.

Not totally accurate as it depends on the current draw from the battery itself. Alkaleaks start at about 1.5v under light loads can keep that voltage and at 1.3v they are over half depleted with light loads. Nimh start at 1.4v or so off the charger and drop to around 1.35 or so after a day or two and slowly drop to 1.1v where they are essentially depleted for all practical purposes. The problem is that many devices are light loads and stop working well at about 1.3 v or a little less where alkaleaks are mostly used up and where nimh are just started to be used up.Also we need to stop thinking about NIMH as 1.2v and alkaline as 1.5v. They're both nominally 1.2v. Look at HJKs site and compare an alkaline AA against a nimh AA and look at the discharge curves. You'll see the nimh will have higher voltage than the alkaline after a short period. If nimh won't work in a device, then with alkaline it'd stop working when the batteries still had 75% capacity left
