Interesting. As usual, this is not the place for official statements or clarifications. That said, I can assure you that we did NOT intend to prohibit NiMH batteries. I'll work on getting the policy updated ASAP to explicitly allow NiMH batteries.More evidence that NiMH batteries have lithium: https://www.batterystore.com/content/MS ... e_MSDS.pdf and https://www.batteriesplus.com/image/sds-Empire-NiMH.pdf
By the way, I just looked up the Materials Safety Data sheet for NiMH batteries and guess what? They contain Lithium!!!! Agghhh! I just spent $150+ on a new recharger and NiMH batteries (because our old expensive LiPo batteries and charger will not work for this season) and it's wasted. Find out for yourself. https://system.na3.netsuite.com/core/me ... c&_xt=.pdf Just to repeat: NiMH batteries DO CONTAIN LITHIUM. So they are not allowed according to this year's rules. Darn!
