8881 vs 88000 Battery Box

Is there an advantage to either one of the battery boxes 8881 vs 88000 or just the size of battery?

    The first question I have to ask- do you understand the difference between batteries?

    Well let's see, one takes AA and the other AAA.  Assuming the same number of batteries are used, it is logical the AA's would have more current carrying capacity due to their larger size.  Since I have never purchased either battery box and the specs read they power the exact same motors I was wondering what is the difference between the two products.

    The both give you 9v. The AA just give you that power longer, with less batteries replaced.

    Other than the capacity, the main one is that #8881 is studless, but clunky, and therefore better suited to Technic, and #88000 is studded and smaller, and therefore better suited to other themes. #88000 is also a direct replacement for the rechargeable battery.
