    Re: NEW RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES ????

    I didn't try them but did ask if its ok to use them as I here they can at full charge be as high as 1.85V and the whites E-series can handle up to 15V, if you don't have a newer machine you should probably check first. I have the MXT and when I get down to 10V at start up I can hear a noticeable difference in the start up beep so at that point I'm afraid that I would be missing those deep whisper targets, thats why the regular AA rechargeables don't appeal to me as they are only 1.2V at full charge. When its at 10V at start up its probably much lower after you have been detecting for a little bit, most batteries will show more charge than they really have till a little drain is on them. If you end up getting some post back at how they work out for you, some people say they don't last any longer but that doesn't bother me as long as I'm getting better voltage the whole time. I usually change my batteries when they get to 10V so the regular batteries at 1.2V is only 9.6 all together, that just won't cut it for me. HH

    You sure you don't mean rbinnovations? The other just comes up with "Under Construction".

    Hi My Fellow TH'ers
    Yes I have used the PowerGenix 1.6 volt NiZn rechargeable batteries and they outlast every battery that I have ever tried. These batteries will charge around 14.6 volts and after two days of eight to ten hours of TH'ing I still have around 13 volts. I have used these batteries in a Whites DFX for the past year or so. I just used them in a Whites V3i and went through four battery packs so have to see what is the problem. I am hoping that I might just have a bad couple of batteries and not a problem with my detector. I will get back to you all after my next search on Saturday.
    Thanks
    Dave

    I'm very interested in knowing what the circumstances were when your detector unit ran short of "juice" after using the NiZn 1.6 v batteries. My limited understanding is that they're long lasting while maintaining voltage. So long as this doesn't hurt the machine, i.e., either the MXT, TDI or V3 units, I'd probably invest in them, but would appreciate hearing back at anyone's convenience what they report. Thanks in advance to your replies.

    batteries are 6 months old, first couple of hunts they worked very well, last couple of hunts the died within an hour
    and i have not abused them, they have only been charged in a genix charger. i guess i will try the rbi batteries
    next.

    There are the 'normal' batteries and the 'rechargeables'. All 'normal' batteries discharge at a constant rate until nearly fully used and then they die quickly. A rechargeable has more of a curve to its discharge pattern. They slowly weaken from about half charge down. I have some Duracell rechargeables that I use and they work and save me money in the long run. However, when the battery indicator on my MD goes from four bars to two bars, I recharge them. Once I get down to two bars my machine begins to act a little strange. The discriminator is less definite in its findings. I have a little more trouble isolating the targets. The depth readout will often show twelve inches for objects an inch down. The MD gets irratic before the batteries run dead. This is true in any use of rechargeable batteries.

    I put together a 9 cell NiMh about 2 years ago and love it, I seldom use the original rechargeable pack that came with my V3i because there's no comparison for the longevity of the 2 packs. I can get no less than two good long hunts (12-14 hrs.) with the 9 cell pack and it's still charging up to 12.8 volts on the charger that came with my detector. I used 2600mA cells for this pack that I bought at a bargain on the internet, I still have enough for another pack along with 4 that I use in the headphones along with a 4 pack charger that I bought at dollar general
