I also use a NiMH, obtained from Radio Shack, with
good results.  I replace mine about every 3 years. I
have had the power supply off for up to a few weeks
without losing the memories.  DO NOT ever use an
alkaline in a Paragon unless the resistor is removed
that supplies charging current to the battery!  The
alkaline will overheat and leak and cause you a lot of
grief.  The manual is wrong and Ten Tec has never
changed it to my knowledge. 

I suspect the charging current is very low and may
take more than a day to charge to full capacity.
