Energy Rechargable batteries?

I've seen some stuff about energy paintball batteries and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they really make that much difference over your standard duracell 9v? The rechargable feature seems nice, and they seem cheap enough, but I'm wondering if they're worth ordering.

They just save you money because when they die, you just charge it instead of buying a new battery. 9volts can get reakky expensive too.

yeah, 9 volts are pretty steep. i was more wondering if they're really different from other 9 volts preformance-wise, like it says on their website. Is it noticably different?

I don't think the performance is much different. They are both just batteries, nothing to specialize one from the other, besides that one is rechargable.

Have you used them? On their website it says there is a "special curve of discharge optimized for markers" or "optimized for loaders." Is that just stretching a small difference into a big one?

Thanks for the posts guys.

The energy paintball batteries are said to last a VERY long time.. 45 cases is what they advertise, and if that were true, that would be a miracle like when Moses divided the Red Sea so I'm guessing theres a catch to that. They are a good size though. Normal 9v's usually have 200-250 mah, where the energy paintball 9v's have 270. Last time I checked though, energy paintball only sells the 9.6v now which is not recommended in most of the newer guns (excluding maybe the spyders, pirhanas, etc.)

the website says that the rechargables are 9.6 volt, but the non-rechargables are just 9's.

im not clear about what these rechargeable batteries will be doing but one think i am certain about are energizer's rechargeable batteries, i use them and they're great. they make all kinds of batteries for the recharging station. most importantly to paintball, they make AAs and 9v's

here's the charging station


heres what the AA batteries look like in my hopper battery pack


the batteries are fully rechargeable, have a short recharge time, and deliver as much kick as a non-rechargeable battery
