The FE-115 is powered by two standard AA type batteries (alkaline, NiMH or lithium). We recommend NiMH AA rechargeables for both financial and ecological reasons. For infrequent use, the one-use lithium batteries are the best choice as they offer a very long shelf life. Check out our Rechargeable Battery Page for info and prices on high-capacity NiMH AA cells.
