    Hello. I'm trying rechargeable NiMH batteries for the first time. Any recommendations on a battery level hack? Also, where can I obtain a list of shortcuts for the Palm OS? Thanks.

    Battery Meter Hack works well, though I don't think that it works with OS 3.5 (unless the designer has created an upgrade).

    You won't be sorry with NIMHs. I've been using them for several months now, and I love them.

    BTW, it's kind of odd, but if you are using Energizer rechargeables, there are a blue kind and a green kind. The blue ones last A LOT longer.

    I would recommend Battery Panel. You can find it here. It's not a hack, you use it from Preferences. It will also keep your settings after a soft reset which I don't think any of the battery hacks do, or the :shortcut: .7. Also, Battery Panel is donation ware so the price is what you want it to be!

    I too think you will be quite happy with the NiMH batteries. I've been using them for awhile in my VDX and am glad I switched.

    Hope this helps...

    Hello -

    I just purchased the ICU battery pack that CompUsa is selling. Its two NiMH batteries, and a charger with a custom battery plate cover. I've used the shortcut to reset my battery type to NiCad, but is there a better option for those batteries? I know that NiMH was offered on real Palms starting with 3.3, but for those of us stuck with handsprings version, what should we use?

    Cheers,

    NiCad setting works fine. That's what I use with my VDX. Of course the beauty of rechargeables is that there's no reason to run them down to the nubs. I usually swap batteries when my monitor starts fluctuating between 35% and 50%.

    Battery Panel doesn't work on the Visor Prism!!!!!
    It caused a "fatal error", I would reset, get another fatal error, etc. until I did a hard reset and wiped out my Prism.
    Fortunately I had done a back up on Thursday, so I wasn't totally screwed!
