How about this one?
http://www.amazon.com/EBL%C2%AE-Battery-Charger-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00HV4KFSA/tag=metaefficient-20
Anybody tried this Li battery, probably one ore 2 cell electronically raised to 9v (guessing)
Unfortunately they do not ship to europe.


I know this post was a few months ago, but I just saw it and thought I'd share my experience. My review? Shit sandwich. These batteries are crap. They don't hold a charge more or less at all. Even brand new. I ordered the 4 pack and all 4 are crap. YMMV.

In my experience, all of these Li-Ion 9V rechargeables are about the same.  They are cheaply made, quality control is bad, but if you get "good" ones (which I've gotten 90% of the time) they will last for a long time. 
This will save a lot of $$$ and a lot of alkaline batteries.
I think this is why the iPower batteries are more expensive.  The product is about the same, but their quality control is much higher, so you're more likely to get a good product.

They are 8.4V and are slightly larger than a standard alkaline.  So they are quirky, but if they work for your application, can be a good fit.  This is evidenced by the 600+ amazon reviews and 4.5 stars.

If you get these, make sure you charge them completely before using.  Someone did a breakdown about balancing the cells, and how the batteries don't achieve full capacity until they are balanced properly.

^^^I've ditched alkalines. No going back to those for me. My knock is only on the EBLs. I'm surprised they're rated as highly as they are on Amazon. In fact, that's why I bought them in the first place. Maybe I just got a bad batch for whatever reason? I've had great luck with the Imedion 9.6v.

has anyone tried the "new " version amazon is promoting ? is there any discernible difference?  just seems like different branding but I just wanted to confirm with the masses..
also is there any difference between the two Maha  branded 9v chargers   ie the one with 4 bays vs ten apart from the number of bays  ie charge time, features quality etc.

^ Looks to be the same original non-LSD version to me.  I find the Maha Imedion LSD version of this battery (black case) more reliable over both the short and long term.

Last I checked (a couple years ago) the Maha 9V chargers were all pretty much the same.  None have the advanced features of their fancy AA/AAA charger, but all are capable of correctly charging 9.6Vs and have individual circuits for each cell, which are the two most important features.

I've been using standard 9v energizer or duracell's in my littlebox v1 (the 2015 edidtion).  They read about 9.25-9.3 new.  Any reason the powerex 9.6v wouldn't be a good option?

I have Tenergy 9v/200mah NIMH Rechargeables, and so far I like them a lot! I don't use them for taping, but they do extremely well for what I am using them for ;)

I am using a Tenergy TB6B Balancing Charger/Dis-Charger, and according to Joe@Tenergy, the proper charging settings for 9v rechargeables are @8.4v/.1a! I am getting around 230-240mah on those settings :) And if I am using my 9.6v/2000mah NIMH RC packs for my VMS02IB, the proper charging settings for those are @9.6v/1a max! 9.6v/2a MAX very rarely! That is, if you have a charger/dis-charger that lets you change those values ;)

But as far as the 'Tenergy' brand batteries, I trust them VERY much and have been using them for well over a decade 8) I'd like to get a couple of their 9v/600mah Li-Ion batteries one of these days, along with some of their 2,600mah/NIMH AA batteries! I have had great success with their 9v & 9.6v Rechargeables and would definitely recommend them :)

Best of luck & Happy Taping :)

So I picked up some of the Powerex 9V Precharged Rechargeable NiMH Battery (9.6V, 230mAh) from b&h.  Tested yesterday just recording the radio and got about 4:45 with my littlebox.  With normal 9v when I tested last year I think I got about 6 hours.  Does this seem right?  Not too worried as I picked up 3 of them and don't generally tape for that long anyway.

Did you charge them first or test them straight out of the package? I use these in my nbox and I get run times comparable to regular 9.6v alkaline batteries.

charged first.  It's been a while since I tested with standard 9v but I recall it was about 6 hours.

The Ah capacity of NiMH 9.6V's is around 230mAh, or about half that of alkaline 9V batteries which average around 500mAh (granted the voltage is higher).  And the 8.4V NiMH versions have only a slightly higher rating of about 300mAh.

That contrasts with NiMH AAs. These days, the Ah capacity of a NiMH AA is typically equal to or greater than a standard AA alkaline, although the nominal voltage is slightly less less at 1.2V verses 1.5V per cell.

This is not totally true.
The 8.4V Li-Polymer rechargeables are usually 600mAh, or even 700mAh, like this one:
