    I just bought some solar lights but they don't come with rechargeable
    batteries. For this application would it be better to buy NiMH or NiCd?
     
  2. What does the manual say? Some chargers will only work with certain battery
    chemestries.

  3. For the solar lights at my store, they have built-in NiCd chargers, of
    course they come with batteries also, but they will only accept those
    kind of batteries anyhow.

    It's only a basic solar light. It doesn't have a properly designed charger
    (or at I don't think it does). I think during the day, current flows to the
    batteries and during the night, current flows from batteries to the LED.
    It's just like any other type of ordinary solar lights you get from hardware
    stores or stores like kmart.
