What is the amperage of 8 1.5 AA Alkaline batteries


Does anyone know the actual or theoretical output of 8 AA 1.5 V Alakaline batteries? I use a 1/3AA Nimh, 4 pack, 4.8V, 180 mah for "toy" R/C airplanes for my neices and nephews. The packs are to be charged from an outlet on the radio. The instructions are to wait until the pack is warm (but not hot) and they are ready to fly. I think this method is really harsh on the packs so I am charging them on a MK2 at 200mah. But if it isn't, I'll charge them on the radio.

Many thanks in advance for the advice.

For your first question about alkalines, take a look at:

Or, are you talking about rechargable alkalines?
