Big batteries like that used to hold loads of disk cells to make up the battery... I wonder if it is true? They also state that those little 12v batteries (for car remotes, etc) are now full of button cells...

Maplin took back loads of 2500 maH NiMh batteries that I bought when I found they went flat too quickly. They had been conned by a (Chinese) supplier who had actually supplied 800maH cells with new wrappings.

According to the comments, most people are finding that most 6v lantern batteries actually contain lond D-cells...

But I wouldn't be surprised by the little 12v. batteries.
