NMH cells were a huge improvement. Prior to them, I gave up on NiCd’s, ordered a very handy, little Velleman kit voltage converter, attached the biggest heat sink the hobby shop had, and hooked it to a sealed Pb-acid battery. Yeah, the rig was kinda heavy and somewhat bulky, but I was able to ignore recharging: rarely ran out of juice even if unplugged all day long. Plus I didn’t get radiated by 60 cycle.

via cable from low-power MacBook lacking wireless devices,
hence radiating no deadly EMR connectivity: see RadiateNot.Me;
plus powered by non-radiating coaxial DC cable from utility shed
where wall wart* EMR is indetectably far away
                           *standard Apple shielded power supply = less emissions
