Too many batteries!!! Is it possible to change from 4 "C" batteries to 1 AA ni-mh? I have 20 solar lites. Very pricey! Answered

I have 20 dusk-to-dawn solar lights.  Each light needs 4 "C" size batteries.  I like the shells of the lights, but I would like to change the guts so that I can use rechargeable batteries that will save me money.
Thanks!

Think about this: you are helping yourself to a free buffet with a large dinner-plate. Your arm is getting tired and you think "can't I use something much smaller, like a saucer?" Yes you can, but you'll have to go back & refill it much more often. I.e. they won't last from dusk until dawn.

Is Re' correct about these being rechargeable already?

Well, you can get adapters that allow you to use a single AA in place of a single C. But, you'll still need 4 of them.

If they are solar lights then they already use rechargeable batteries.

1 AA will not work. You need 4 AA and they will likely have less than half the run time of C cells, if that.
