And I just ordered the pre-made battery pack from the bay that you linked to. I assume that is a rechargeable pack?

Eneloops are fine from a battery power perspective, however I believe (though could be wrong) that Eneloops only come in button-top style, and would stress and likely damage the battery contacts with extended use (since they are longer, they stress the contacts).

Yes, the battery pack from Waterhosko (Mark is here on the Forum from time to time) is a pair of rechargeable NiMH AA cells. The originals were much lower capacity NiCDs so this pack will definitely last longer than the original pack; I believe NiMH cells self-discharge (when not being used) a bit faster than NiCDs so its a bit of a trade-off, but your likely not buying them to just have your 32E sit in the desk drawer.

Good luck and update us with your results.
