I've got an old Siemens M35 that I keep for emergency use in the car.
The previous NIMH batteries lasted about 3 years. I was forced to buy
a Li-Ion battery last time as no NIMH were available and it only
lasted a few months. The manual says it is OK to use either type. Is
it something that I'm doing or was it a faulty battery ? What does the
difference in mAh mean ? Will the supplied charger cope with both
types ? Does battery quality vary between manufacturers ?
