    Hi
    Just got my 2mb Pronto RU940:cool:
    I didn't buy a docking station but would like to use rechargable batteries.
    Does anyone have any experiences of good/bad types/makes...things to avoid etc?
    Also has anyone got their pronto working as a mouse on their HTPC?

    I use Grand Cell rechargeables and they are fine. they don't last as long as Duracells but at least I don't skimp on using the backlight etc. Nothing to be wary of IMHO.

    I bought a Uniross charger with 4x1200mAmp NiHm batteries from Argos for about £12.
    Never had any problems. The back light does batter the battery life but I just charge them overnight when the Pronto starts to complain about low battery power.
