Didjerrydo Posted April 16, 2006 Share Posted April 16, 2006 I'm starting to notice if I try to use lithium batteries in my Garmin 60 CSx, it comes on for a moment and starts to boot up, then the display just fades out and goes off as though the batteries were weak or dead. The first time it did this I thought I simply had old cells or ones that had died on the shelf, but when I checked them, they were putting out 1.78 v! I repeated this with 2 more sets of new lithium cells with the same results. The unit works fine on my rechargable NiMH cells that top off around 1.4 v. Are these cells just a little too hot for the unit and it is just bowing out rather than risk frying something inside? Quote Link to comment
