After my laser died, I got my batteries tested too and got the exact same results. I had them tested at an electronics store. Right away after I heard about the voltage being higher than specified, I figured the higher voltage probably fried my laser's diode, but the technician told me that a higher voltage reading is actually normal. He said that anything below 3.7v is considered "dead" on a 3.7v battery, and that they should be closer to 4.1 or 4.2v when charged. That kind of surprised me since regular AA batteries are 1.5v, yet rechargeable AA batteries are only 1.2v, and they aren't "dead" at all.

Thirdly AA nonchargeable batteries are alkaline batteries and rechargeable batteries are either NMHD or NiCadiums so the voltage is not the same as alkalines. Really this is battery basics people.
Correct on all counts.
