Default Energizer Lithium Ion Batteries - Can you recharge them?

What does it really take to recharge a lithium ion battery. I forgot I had bought these and was comparing them to my rechargable Engerizers. I saw they are also 1.5V vs the 1.2V rechargeables.

But they say "dont" recharge them. Is this true or can I recharge them or any type of lithium battery? Also would they outperform a 2500mah nimh energizer rechargable. This is all going in my TX so I want long run times of course and extra power.

If you cant get those to recharge, since they say you cant. Is there any lithiums that you can get for this purpose in the AA format and do you have to recharge those with a special charger?

Thanks.

AI,

I would say that if it says not too recharge them, don't. If you did have a have a rechargable Lithium Ion battery you will need a compatible charger (I think the Duratrax Ice does). NEVER charge any Lithium (Ion or Polymer) battery on a charger that doesn't specifically say it will charge those types of batteries, just looking for trouble......As for the Nimh batteries, I use them all the time and they work very well and are worth the few bucks you pay for them. Hope this helps

Are there rechargable lithium ion's that you can buy at the store that are rechargable. Do they give more juice or runtime over a 2500mah energizer rechargable?

2500 Mah Nimh are plenty fine and you won't need a special charger. As long as you have a Nimh capable charger you are good to go. Don't worry too much about batteries for your transmitter

Iam not worried. I just want the best, I got the rechargables to save me money. I wouldnt mind a little bit higher of a voltage and longer run times, if thats the case.
