Auto battery detect option with K-R.

Does anyone know if selecting the menu setting for the type of battery being used rather than using auto battery detect will increase the length of the battery charge?

I think it is just for the battery meter... Not sure though

On my K-x, it certainly shoots longer on NiMH than Auto (even has problems turning on) with older NiMH batteries, so I leave it on that.
