    I made a switch to alkaline batteries in my controller recently....I was using heavy duty batteries and they were constantly dying! The alkalines last alot longer ;)

    Anyone else have this problem?

    abother good thing about rechargable's is they save u money in the long run. instead of buying a new set every time they die, u jus charge the same ones 'n use them over again.

    and alkalines dont hold full power very long so you slowly lose range...if you get rechargables get ni-mh not ni-cad
