I would like to use rechargeable batteries in my Pocket Wizard Plus II's, but according to the manual, "Alkaline batteries are recommended. Rechargeable batteries will also work, though operation time may be reduced." Can anyone explain this to me?
I contacted Thomas Distributing Customer Service and was told there shouldn't be any problem using rechargeable batteries with my Pocket Wizard's.

I have used the same rechargeable batteries that I use in my flashes since I bought my Pocket Wizards... Part of being a guy means never needing to read the manual... lol, so I never knew that using NiMH wasn't optimal, I do top them up after every use so I guess that keeps me from noticing the problem with shortened operating time. I have used them to remote trigger my rig while shooting wildlife from sunrise to sundown and have had no problem with the batteries not lasting.
Will shoot for fame...fun...food... a heck I'll shoot anytime anywhere.

Thanks for the response. I much rather use rechargeables batteries instead of alkalines, and do so with my Nikon flashes.
Have a good day.
