    I have used the Energizer Recharge batteries in my AT Pro for many years now and they work excellent. No issues whatsoever and I can get roughly 3 full days of detecting in before I have to recharge them.

    I have an AT Pro and I use recharge batteries all the time here in Brazil. I have the eneloop/sanyo charger which is 110/220 volts. I get about 12 to 15 outings at 1 1/2 to 2 hours at a time before they go to 1 bar on battery indicator. No problems with the pro or battery performance. I got the eneloop charging system from Costco about 6 years ago . So I hope this helps your choice.

    Thank you I appreciate the input. I have realized that I am going through way to many batteries and want to do something better.

    I don't know with an AT Pro, but with some detectors the 1.5v of an Alkaline cell doesn't like to be substituted with the 1.2v of a rechargeable. An Alkaline cell is considered "dead" when it gets below 1.3 volts.

    Your detector may always show no "bars" of voltage left even with newly charged rechargeables.

    Some are designed from the get-go to use rechargeables and will do fine.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Most all modern detectors have voltage regulators and run on a lower voltage than the combined voltage of the batteries installed. Otherwise, as soon as the batteries lost a little voltage they would quit working or working properly. Your AT Pro will run fine with rechargeable batteries.
