At the other end of the spectrum, I'm designing hand-held receivers for 2m and 80m for use while
running through the woods, so light weight and operating time are both important.  A typical 80m
receiver draws around 10mA, so even a 9V battery will last many hours.  But I'm also looking at
putting a pair of 3V lithium cells into a single AA battery holder (needs to be stretched slightly)
to give me 6V @ 1200mA in the space of a single cell.  Those particular cells are not rechargeable,
however, but it seems like a pretty good compromise for power density and total space used.

Sounds interesting.. Please message me when you get that working!
