    I'm looking to buy this system but only if I can use rechargeable batteries. Is the cut-off voltage really around 1.2v? If this is the case then they are going to be pretty wasteful on standard alkaline batteries too.

    They do work but I find the standard rechargable NiMH batteries don’t last long. I’m thinking of either buying some non rechargeable lithium AA or rechargeable LI-ion AA (but these ones require a different charger).

    The only way (I suppose) is to find and use rechargeable batteries that are 1.5V - that's the voltage per AA batteries.

    Not good Tado have addressed this issue to some degree a long time ago

    I'm trying them as an experiment - I'd rather recharge every month than keep buying disposable. When fully charged they register as low, but as a low reading battery can last for months anyway I'm going to try it out.

    Same here, I'm still using rechargeable batteries but they won't last long, I would say 2 weeks at max during winter/heavy use.

    So my brand new, fully charged Philips batteries managed 2 hours....

    I ended up buying the non rechargable lithium AA’s 5 months ago and still showing fully charged on each thermostat.
