    Re: question on air sextant MKIX
    From: Fred Hebard

    Size C won't provide as much amperage over time as the Ds; ie, they
    won't last as long.  The Ds also can supply more peak amperage, but
    that usually isn't a consideration with lights.
    
    Alkaline batteries usually last longer than carbon-zinc batteries,
    but there can be subtle changes in size that can make them less
    suitable.  Everready "Classic" batteries are the old-type carbon zinc
    for which American instruments would have been designed.
