Same question about unprotected with adapter. In fact, using an unprotected will result in a bit higher average performance since unprotected , or any unprotected battery, has a lower resistance than the protected batteries of the same grade.

The adapter would have to have extremely thin walls or have some configuration other than the typical slipover tube. Xeen — Thanks for the heads up about there being an adapter in the box.
