   Actually, that would be my preferred way of doing it: 4 NiMH cells
in series and no special circuitry to waste battery power. Most NiMH AA
cells will easily deliver 1000 mA and the nominal 4.8 V output is fine. The
catch is that fresh off the charger, the voltage is nearly 5.6 V and the
absolute maximum rating of the Neo is 5.5 V.
