For three years I have been using the re-chargable as my main battery, but always have the AA pack in the bag in the Jeep for back-up. Been thinking about the RNB for a while. Well after a trip to the Jeep in the middle of a hunt today for that back-up pack, I ordered one when I got home. Are they as good as they say? I hope so, I am sure I have spent the cost for one buying AA's the last three years.

You'll like it. I probably hunted a good 100-120 hrs the last half of 2017 n only charged mine twice. They last.

Thanks Orge. I hate when you have 2 bars when you leave home, and an hour into the hunt you're down to nothing! Extra batteries...........one less thing in the bag to haul around in the Jeep

I love mine too. You'll still want to keep a spare battery pack with you (at least in the vehicle). I find that the battery lasts so long, I forget that it DOES have to be charged now and then! :laughing7::icon_thumright:

I love my RNB battery! I have tried to kill that thing and can't do it. I can hunt for days without charging it.

A after market battery , for Minelabs.....Garretts...maybe others, not sure. Longer lasting, less charging, supposed to last forever between charges, way longer than the stock battery.very good reviews

Great battery solution for Minelab (Explorer, e-trac), Whites (DFX, V3i...etc. and Garrett (ATpro...etc). I had the pleasure of testing the batteries and trust me they really are a good product.

The battery life on the RnB E-Trac battery is INSANE. If you have a bad stock battery the RnB is the one to get!

Just ordered one for my ATPro. There was a 20% coupon today, I'd been hoping for from anyone selling them, which green lighted the purchase! :thumbsup:

I know this is an old post, but I thought I'd share an experience with RNB. After having my Etrac hanging in my garage unused for a year, I recently pulled the battery to charge it for an outing. After a year, the battery reached full charge in just a few short minutes! That battery held its charge for a year untouched! These are great batteries!

100% agree! Less than two hours to charge them versus eighteen hours to charge the NiMH batteries! Don't leave home without them!
