Their math does not add up correctly for the ratings they give.   So it makes me wonder?  This looks like the same Ebay battery that was supposed to be high power but turned out they were not supplying the same battery that they advertised.  Curious to hear back once they arrive.  I could not find any markings or ratings on the batteries them selves only what the seller is providing. 

And just a reminder...shameless self promotion....for about $40 you can have you dead/tired DVD battery upgraded to these same kind of specs.   Well I guess you could even have a good one done too if you wanted the higher capacity.

Yup, looks like the old DVD batteries we all have but with a big-ass capacity.  And a pricetag to match. :)

I got my main power supply for my 788 from same company...Bix power. It is fantastic! Best battery I've ever owned!  How long will one of the 2300mah DVD batteries power a PSP-3. Those things don't have much pull really.

I wouldn't trust the mah claims on this battery until someone gets one and provides confirmation, especially since they're jacking the price up for that reason.  The manufacturer of this battery has a track record of inflating the capacity rating on the specs of their DVD batteries.  This has been documented by Kirkd and others in this forum and I also owned one for a long time.  It was a good reliable battery, but it's not the capacity they say it is.

@ Cap'n et al. I followed the bad eBay battery thread. Pretty sure this one is different, and a different vendor. I don't recall the brand involved being Bixnet. I've seen others (Louis I think for one) buy this brand, not necessarily this model though...

http://www.bixnet.com/bx948.html

It's on it's way, I'll report back.

Bryonsos...I hope you don't discover what others have about these batteries, but unfortunately I'm just suggesting that based on mine and others experiences with these batteries, you should prepare yourself.

FWIW, Bixnet isn't the brand it's the vendor...the brand is unknown on these and therein lies the problem.  The vendor is a middle man and he wouldn't necessarily know the specs they just pass on the bogus info.  The earlier point wasn't that ebay or amazon are bogus vendors for selling these batteries, it's that amazon won't refund your money when you find out that the specs have been falsified on a product sold on their site.  At least you may have a recourse on ebay to file a claim for a refund based on the bogus info even though the seller may not have known that they were passing on bogus info.

Well, it certainly meets the specs on the page, but it is only 13300 mAh at 3.6V, not 9V.  At 9V, it is 5400 mAh.  Price seems a little high for that capacity.

If you have a problem relating to the Live Music Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/etree) please send an e-mail to us admins at etree(AT)archive(DOT)org or post in the LMA thread here and we'll get on it.

Maybe. These higher capacity ones are like unicorn teeth though, especially from a reliable vendor. For me, now I have a 9V solution to use while Kirk upgrades my 2 2300mAh ones to badassness  ;D

Agree.  At the very minimum it looks like you picked up a good battery that will supplement what you already have.  The only issues I had with mine was the specs...but the battery was always very reliable and I used it for a long time.
