I think I have.  The VX-150 came with NiCads, but now you can get
after-market NiMH battery packs for it, and I think they trickle-charge
through the radio too.  (On that last item, I'm not certain, as I don't have
one.  I do know that some people have modified the standard pack to take
NiMH cells and they say it works, but you do need to be careful not to do
stuff like over-charge them.)
