    Anyone use rechargeable batteries in their AT Pro? I read somewhere that you can but I've also read that alkalines are better. Any thoughts?

    1st - I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard TheMug! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... and selecting location information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country). You might also consider adding your state (or country) to your displayed profile (SETTINGS -> EDIT PROFILE) - members may have more success helping you (your location may help, etc.)...
    2nd - Like Boss Driver stated - they are used. I searched and found a bunch of threads all talking about using rechargeable batteries on their AT's. Here are a few quotes...

I am happy with mine.The real bonus for me will be hunting in the cold weather."
