umm i dont kno about the switch but i am shure you could ask them but after you spind that much you might as well get a RPL
And thx fpr sharing your experience on nimh's with me. I thought the IR pump diodes could be driven better on 1,2v cells, at least better than the red diodes. I have a pulsar (completely unregulated) and it kind of annoys me that the lasers drops so fast in power due to draining batteries. I thought it would be less of a problem with the greenies. Might be another "pro" for the RPL as this unit uses 3V Lithium rechargeables Hm I got to look into that... Anyway thank you very much for explaining me the Alpha 125, that helped me a lot.
