Frequently Asked Questions
What type of batteries work best and last the longest in the KMC 3?
We recommend alkaline “D” cell batteries or, especially if battery power will be used often, rechargeable “D” cell batteries with a separate charger (the KMC 3 will not recharge batteries). For many of our tests we used Energizer alkaline “D” cells, rated at between 10,000-20,000 mAh, depending on the load. With batteries, like anything else, you get what you pay for so we recommend a known brand name with a higher mAh rating. NiMH rechargeable batteries and a charger for them cost more initially but would pay for themselves in the long run if you plan to use battery power on the KMC 3 frequently.
