Title: 9V li-ion batteries
Post by: jerryfreak on January 07, 2020, 04:40:39 AM
interesting, ive never seen these before. are cheap (cheaper than good nimh 9Vs) and have pretty high discharge currents

good data here

I have been using the EBL batteries for some time and they work great. The price (22 USD for four, including a charger) is pretty good too:

Not compatible with a 4 9V Nbox? I know I need to be careful when ordering the PowerEx's to ensure I'm getting the 9.6V version instead of the 9V version. The 9V rechargeable batteries wont power the Nbox the way a 9V Duracell copper top would.

not sure, nick is pretty secretive about the operating voltage of the nbox, but all of the rechargables (particularly the eight-cell 9.6V NiMHs) should have plenty of voltage as 9V alkaline in normal use go down on a relatively constant slope to 6.0V

depending on type, most rechargables have a flatter curve between 7.5 and 10V

more than you ever wanted to know (thanks to justme for turning us on to this site)

I'd suggest these for use w/ the N-Box (any flavor):

Tried and true. Between Nicky, klitz, Ed Tyre, Chomps and myself we've made hundreds of recordings using these batteries in the N-Box...

Yes those are what I've been using too but I see there are so many more rechargeable 9V options than there were just a few years ago yet none appear to have the 9.6V like the PowerEx/Immedion and I suspect would be useless in a Nbox.

From what I recall Craig T and Ed had nothing but headaches w/ the rechargeable 9v. It wasn't until the 9.6v came out that there was a viable nimh rechargeable option...

Yes, the (much) older 9V NiMH wouldn't work in the 4x 9V powered NBox.  The 9.6V that Tim referenced worked fine in my original NBox and now my NBox-Platinum.
