After buying lights from ScubaToys, It occured to me that it might be handy to order some rechargable batteries and charges at the same time.
In Australia, the price of quality rechargables are about twice the price as compared to online US sites (and also harder to find). The only problem with ordering from US site is I'll pay being way too much shipping the second time around. It would have worked out really well though, if it was included in the shipping chrages of my ScubaToys order.

You could even put one of those drop down links that say 'Would you like rechargable batteries with this?' on the torch pages!

Just a suggestion!

Rechargable AA Batteries (http://www.scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=SL191)

Rechargable AA Batteries


This SeaLife pack of 4 matched NIMh 1800mAh batteries will work in any of the SeaLife cameras or Strobes. It is best to change battereis for each dive.



Price: $15.95

The price seems high to me and I don't know who the manufacture is. I use Energizer 1800 NIMh from Walmart............ Good luck!

I use the energizers as well - started buying them for an MP3 player a couple years ago, and have just kept adding more and more to the collection... they work great, and they are widely available... I think wally world charges $10 for a 4 pack...

I also use the Wally World Energizers and have had good luck with them in my strobes and lights. They are also higher capacity (2500 mAh - 17.99 for 8). I wouldn't recommend buying 1800 mAh AA batteries - that is pretty old technology (2700 and 2800 mAh are out now).

We get the Engerizer 2500amh batteries over here in Asutralia and I think i saw the 3 hour charger and 4 batteries for under $20aud.

Again thats the price we pay for living in such a great country..........more expensive on most items when compared to the states.
