Sure have, about 2 months ago ...and so far they're working great. In fact, my old Petzl Tikka has never shined so brightly. About the same time I popped the AAA's in my headlamp I also put 2 AA lithiums in my digital camera. Carried it on my recent hike from Kincora to Damascus and took dozens of pics (with and without flash). When I got home the battery indicator still showed a full charge.

If they perform anywhere near as good as the 'AA' batteries they will last three times longer (plus or minus) and weigh less at the same time. I have been looking for 'AAA' lithium batteries and haven't been able to find them. Where are you getting them at?

Haven't bought AAA Alkalines in a while so don't know the exact price but I paid $8 for a four pack of the AAA lithiums

They are an excellent choice for winter hiking as well. When they are cold, they continue to energize.........wanderer

I've had AA in my camera now for quite some time. Have taken well over 200 pics and have kept the video window on as well, including using it to show just about everyone all the pics I've taken. They're still going strong. I've got AAA in my headlamp right now but haven't used them for very long. Will know better after my six week section starting NEXT WEEK!!!! :D Oh man, I gotta get packin........ :eek:
