Hello, I took your advice on choice of battery. The battery that I need is AA. Does OEM battery come in that size and if so where would I find them?
The only info. I have is the item#428402-41W
Ok one moment please.
This is from the manufacturers web site FAQ.
Can I use any other type of battery or higher mAh batteries?
You may use Ni-Cd or Ni-Mh batteries. Higher mAh is allowed, but could result in a longer charge time. Battery capacity is rated in milliamps (mAh) and is printed on the side of the battery. You cannot however, replace a Ni-Cd or Ni-Mh battery with a Lithium battery.
You may have tried installing batterys that are higher amp hour rated. To use them you must first charge them with a battery charger. The higher amp hour rating makes it very difficult for the solar to charge them. It could take weeks if not more, but if you pre charge them then all the solar has to do is maintain them.
Please let me know if you have any other immediate concerns.If not please select a positive rating at this time. Doing so will not close your question, and after you rate my service you may ask any followup questions you like. All at no additional charge.Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
