3 X AAA ?

by bramdriesen on Sun Feb 03, 2013 10:36 am

Hi, I kust finished my TV-B-Gone kit. At first it didn't worked but i found my problem I had one bad solder joint but it is fixed now. When I bought the kit from your webside I read that you could increase it's power with a 3 X AA batery holder. Now when I was ordering i accidently ordered a 3 X AAA batery holder instead of a 3 x AA. I don't know anything about electronics so does this batery holder also increases the power? And do I need to change my battery's more often now because I use AAA baterys?

Yes. 3xAAA will work and will give you more power. They just won't last as long as the AAs.
