    Whether bugging in or out, if or when the generator fuel is depleted, when there isn't sufficient sunlight to feed the panels, there is an alternative low VDC recharging solution out there.

    I seem to recall having read somewhere that I should not use rechargeable batteries in my LED Maglites (AA and D Cell models). However, I cannot find such a warning in the instruction manual or on the website. Is it okay to use rechargeables or not? Thanks for any information.
