Technology Item 11 "Palm Pilots" 1501 Total Responses I just discovered something interesting. With people who have PalmOS devices that support and run PalmOS 3 , you can change what type of battery your battery display indicator thinks it's measuring with a Grafitti shortcut combination (this was news to me!).
I'm using NiMH batteries in my new Handera, for example, and the battery display was just completely out to lunch. Here's what you do:
1) Open a blank memopad document
2) Grafitti the shortcut character (like a cursive lowercase letter l)
3) Grafitti a period (dot then dot)
4) Grafitti the digit 7
Your display should now say something like [Nicad]
5) Repeat steps 2-4 until it says the type of batteries you're using. Different versions of PalmOS support different types of battiers. 3.5 supports alkaline, NiCad, NiMH, and rechargeable alkalines at a bare minimum.
