A-Ha!  Thats why some of my 9vs are 11v+  out of the charger, and one might be in the low 10's.  A bad cell of the 6 cells in the 9v.  I figured anything over 10v, was cool, but what I was seeing was most in a tight grouping (11v+) and one (obviously the dud) lower than the rest (10v), but still way over 9.6v.  These things are very finnicky indeed.

Yes, I had 2 melt at a Matt Nathanson show... for no apparent reason... it was solo acoustic and they were fully charged the night before

I, for one, am disappointed.  That could have been so much funnier if you'd said it was Britney Spears, etc.  Then we could have speculated that it was battery suicide.

I am 99% sure I was still using the VMS02ib for that show... I cover way too many different types of music... though, this one was thanks to the EX.  The 2 songs she did on mike SUCKED, the rest of the performance was great to record a DAT via a PA

Did anyone ever use a RC battery like this one? 
If I could use it, I would feel a lot more comfortable not worrying about battery life during the show….especially in stealth taping situation.

Can you fit that in the nbox battery space?  May be its the pix, but it looks big to me (but I like the idea)

Hi
There is no way to fit that battery in the nbox battery space.  But what I am thinking about is to replace the lid with one of a plastic container and let the lead wire out of the box to the battery which is to be bundled up with rubber bands.

Dude, you need to *read the thread* and understand the problem before you blow your balls off ;)

If it was as easy as slapping any old 9 volt pack on there, people would have done it long ago.. and they would have done it with the lithium batteries most of us already have.

Has anyone ordered the 9.6v Powerex recently?

I just got a new set of 4 and they still say Powerex in tiny lettering but seem to be rebranded as Imedion. They are black now too. Is anyone using the newer ones?

That's what I am trying to figure out. I was hoping someone would chime in and say "I am using the new ones and had no issues" before I crack open the packaging.

tech specs and the technologies are different... and could negatively impact our hobby.

how do these check out as far as pre used voltage and then after voltage?
