These BATTERIES ARE SPECIFICALLY FOR SOLAR PATIO/WALKWAY OUTDOOR LIGHTING. Many outdoor solar lights have batteries on their insides. Batteries (or power cells) that must be able to accept a long-term solar recharge. Just unscrew/ snap open the head of the light, and you'll see a original equipment manufacturer (OEM) yellow power cell that looks like an "AA" battery. Over time this will need replacing. To my knowledge, that is the ONLY thing that these particular power cells are made for.

600 mha is not the problem
(the higheer the number the longer the battery lasts)
3.6 volts is
(rechargerable AA batteries are 1.2 volts)
thats why your device burned up
they should not be called AA batteries
they should not fit in place of a AA battery

and don't ever put them in a digital camera it would be destroyed in a puff of smoke.

Very interesting battery and could have many uses however...
From the description these are sold to replace old batteries in certain Westinghouse solar lights. These are NOT the standard 1.5 volt AA disposable or 1.2 volt AA rechargable NiCd or NiMH. If they come out of the package charged and if you were to use these 3.6 volt batteries to replace a "standard" AA battery (one cell per one cell) in nearly ANY application it is highly likely the item will be damaged or destroyed. They would not charge properly if at all in a charger or device designed for AA Ni-Cad or NiMH cells. The per cell voltage is the main issue here. One of these 3.6V could replace three end to end stacked 1.2V NiCads. For example, if you had a flashlight that used three NiCads stacked up you might be able to use one of these and two AA "blanks" (basically an AA sized jumper) Also there is a chance this cell could overheat from excess current flow especially if the device was designed for alkaline or NiMH batteries. Another problem you may have is finding the correct charger. These are LiFePo4 (lithium iron phosphate) not NiCad or NiMH. Play safe...

If your lights use NiCad probably better to stick with NiCad than risk damaging them or just wasting the money. It's hard to say without knowing the design of the light circuit.

answer 2
Yes, of course. they actually work a little better than NiCads. Most of the batt. in solar lights 360-400mAhr these at 600mAhr. Its good to take them and charge them with a regular charger every month or so. Any rechargeable battery will work with your solar lights. As you can tell Direct full sunlight max 3.0vdc, you can use any mAhr rating.

They were intended to be charged in the Westinghouse Solar light. You may find the correct charger with some searching but not at WM.
