Currently using Hi-tech 9V rechargeable and they have been a trooper for two seasons. Lithion Ion does wonders

Awesome read, bought some rechargeable 9v 200mAH. Hope they work for my axe, trial n error at this point.

So I have a question regarding Powerex Batteries:

Amazon lists a rechargeable 9v (9.6v @ 230mAh) and a rechargeable 9v (8.4v @ 300mAh). I'm not yet too witty or understanding of the voltage tolerances of boards but would it be better to go with the high output/lower capacity of the 230mAh or the other way around? I worry about the possibility of frying boards vs possibly running out more frequently.

I wasn't too successful in finding what the actual output of an Energy Paintball 9v special forces battery was (trying to look during work isn't always a good bet) but didn't find anything. Any advice on the numbers above?

You can probably find the datasheet for Duracell batteries online.

Duracell and the other well known brands like it were easier to find but Energy Paintball was challenging.

Also curious. I have some 9.6v s and was wondering whether these are board killers in guns. Worked in a pinokio, but was afraid to put them in a gun.

It should depend on the board itself and the marker components. For example, even though a solenoid might only be rated for 5v, the board may send the full 9v to the solenoid due to the short time it's sent. Other boards actually send 5v to the solenoid.

With that said, here's my personal take on it: I don't believe using a battery outputting 9.6v will hurt a board more than a 9v battery will. In other words, if 9v is a fine, normal, expected voltage for the device to run at, but 9.6v is too much for the board, IMO, there's a design issue there. I digress... So, the issue comes in when you have a bad charger that ends up charging a battery well past 9.6v (I've seen them go to 11v) or getting a poor battery (I've seen them rated as low as 7.2v). It's ultimately much better for the company to avoid all kinds of issues by just stating "Don't use rechargeable batteries". Then they don't have to worry about actually sending too much voltage and frying something, or not enough and frying / damaging / flat out not working.

I've used the powerex and blue ebay 9.6v rechargeables for quite a while in my PE and BL markers without issue. I always test the voltage before day of play as rechargeables can go bad. Typically mine range from 9.2-10v.
