Actually these are the ones I just got:

Though these have the higher voltage, I believe the discussions earlier implied that the 230 mah wont cut it for the 4 hours that most of us expect to see the nBox run for

^ I was getting 3.5 hours consistently out of the older 230mah version (the white powerex ones).

I did not get 1000 recharge cycles out of them before they became unreliable.

No the 9.6 volt 230 mah batteries are the ones i use and Nicky C uses in our Nboxes, we went from 9 volt 300 mah ones to the 9.6 volt 230 mah ones for 3.5 hours
of runtime then a swap for another 3.5. I still have a rotation of 8 batteries i am using for some time now with no problems.

The ones perks just got seem to be the newer version that Thomas is selling right now.

not to re-open an older thread, but I had a battery "loose" connection on Saturday and I want to buy 8 new 9v, I am curious if anyone has a place to get these batteries on a deal better than Thomas Dist for 10.97 each plus shipping (or order over 100 for free shipping)

Thanks for the better deal, but I am in NY and would have to pay NYC sales tax of 8.75% and that sucks for me
