Until a pro comes along to provide a technical answer, I'll provide some thoughts. AA versus AAA in battery description is only a matter of PHYSICAL size, and CAPACITY, IF they are of the SAME TYPE [i.e., alkaline, Nickel-Cadmium, Nickel-Metal Hydride, etc.]. They both provide the same voltage, and the only real difference is how long they can run the same device. Because of the difference in physical size, they will not fit in battery holders designed for the other. However, in an emergency sitation, if you can connect the positive and negative terminal ends of the batteries to the proper positive and negative terminals of the device, then they can be substituted for each other. Regarding the differences of the TYPES of batteries, the only practical difference is the output voltage, which varies slightly. For example, a fresh alkaline AA or AAA battery has an output voltage of 1.5 volts DC. If I recall correctly, a Nickel-Cadmium battery output is about 1.2 to 1.25 volts DC, and the Nickel-Metal Hydride output is about 1.2 volts DC. Hope this helps. j3h

What is a triple-double in basketball?

A triple-double is when you record three double-digit stats. The most common triple-double involves points, assists, and rebounds. For example, 24 points, 12 assists, and 14 rebounds. You can have a triple-double involving any stat except for turnovers. A player could only score 4 points and get only 3 assists, but get a triple-double by having 13 rebounds, 11 blocks, and 15 steals. That is a rarity, but it counts as a triple-double. To be more precise, it is when a player records double-digit values for three statistical categories. It is not limited to points, rebounds, and assists although this is the typical method by which players attain a triple-double A basketball player accomplishes a triple double by reaching double digits in 3 of the following: assists, rebounds, points, steals, and blocks. In most cases the 3 doubles are assists, rebounds, and points. There have also been 4 quadruple doubles in the NBA, when players reached double digits in 4 of the above stats. The quadruple double has only been possible since the 1973-1974 season, when the NBA began counting steals and blocks.
