I use this lantern with NiMH batteries and it works fine. Specifically, I use the Energizer AA Rechargeable 2200 mAh batteries or the Sanyo Eneloop AA 2000 mAh (I have multiple sets of rechargable batteries which I use for all sorts of things). I also use the AA to D adapters so the batteries will fit. The Sanyos last a little longer; probably because they are better batteries. Obviously, the AA rechargeables don't last as long as D batteries. I also haven't timed how long the lantern lasts with AA rechargables, but my best guess is about 10-15 hours. I hope this helps.

I use it with the Powerex 10,000 mah rechargeable D cells and it last just as long as the alkaline. I have used it for a week while camping and no problem. I also use a 12v D, C, AA, AAA charger with a solar panel to keep an extra set of batteries charged up and ready to go. No problems after a year of running this system.

Does anyone know what the difference is between the Rayovac SE3DLN and the SE3DLNA lantern?

Excellent question. I will wait to see answer before buying this lantern as I want to use rechargeable batteries with it.

I was about to ask the same question. Any takers? Specifically, is there a contraindication to using a rechargeable battery with the Rayovac Sportsman 300-Lumen Lantern?
