Question about Vivitar 283 Flash
I use Duracell 2650 mAh rechargeable AA's with my 283 all the time. You may read that 1.2v Duracells or other rechargeables will not work because of the slightly lower voltage (alkalines are 1.5v).
I believe the problem lies not with the voltage, but is due to the slightly fatter profile of the rechargeables that causes a tight fit in the Vivitar battery pack. I find that, after inserting all four (the last will go in really tight), I need to give each cell one more firm push so that it seats properly into the battery pack.
