I just got this recently, haven't had a chance to use it, but it was one of the cheaper Li-Ion 9v setups I could find. Made in the USA too!

Edit: What are you planning on powering? Hopper or marker?

Get to use this yet? I'm pretty interested in hearing a review.

I probably won't get around to installing it for a bit and I'm not making a review. I'm planning on installing some small qd's on my harness when I install the battery, that way I won't have to remove the battery from my gun. Just open up grip frame, detach disconnect from harness, attach disconnect to the charger and let it recharge the battery. When it's done, just reconnect the battery to the harness and reattach the grips.

Really, it's a battery. As long as it powers the marker for a day that's all I need it to do. I can't see one battery being 'better' than another. Some people use the Spyder rechargeable batteries which have a output of around 9.6v, but I don't need that high of a voltage. My solenoid needs about 5v so the nominal voltage provided by the linked battery (7.2v I think) is plenty to power my marker(Promaster). The mah rating is what I'm most interested in. The mah is going to ultimately decide how long you can run the battery in the marker before it goes dead. As long as it gets me through 3-4 cases, I'm fine. I want to say that this battery should get me through at least 15 if not more. I don't tourney ball and I don't go to a lot of big games. I hate taking the battery out of my marker though.

And if you are thinking about getting one of these batteries, first find out what your power requirements are. These batteries might not work well in some markers that need close to 9v.
