Think about it, almost anything can be modded to use batteries, I hope we get some great entries, even if the prize kinda sucks......

What's wrong with the prizes? Good rechargeable batteries can be kinda pricy, and nobody dislikes an Instructables t-shirt.

Yes, but you get to keep your project. You don't trade it in for the prize. And, like Osgeld said, a lot of projects are made from stuff you already have.

It's more about the spirit of competition than the prizes anyway, and you're going to get some pretty cool stuff with this contest. Don't like the prize? Simple solution- stop complaining, just wait for the next contest.

Me too, I can always use more rechargeable batteries! My camera eats batteries like kids eat candy.

Not to mention I'm always the one people go to for batteries at my house so half the time I only have 4 batteries...

Same with my laser. Its green awesomeness diminishes after an hour of use.

The prize does NOT suck! I will find the batteries very useful for my hungry camera.. And I don't care if the charger is 120v operated, I have a converter to convert 240v to 120v.

I like the prize. Rechargeable batteries are useful. Instead of having to go to a store to buy new batteries you just plug them into the charger.

I plan to actually enter this one! I've got ideas that range from grossly inappropriate (for a family friendly site) to helpful gadgets to military-applications. I'll probably just enter the helpful gadget type.

no, im saying that the cost of shipping is probably more than the cost of the batterie. The device you make could cost more than the batteries!
