9.6V battery on original defiant.

Anyone know If I can use those 9.6v batteries from Kingman? I have a **** load of those spyder batteries so can anyone think of a reason why I wouldn't be able to?



I posted this in the bob long forum too which is apparently not the way to do it.

I dont see why you couldnt. Most 9volt batteries test out well above 9 volts brand new so the 9.6 will make no difference. I personally prefer to use Lithium medical grade 9volts as they last 3x as long as a regular 9volt, they also test out at ~11.4 volts new.

yeah I ended up taking the chance and sticking it in there.. I even put one in my Rainmaker and two of them in my 12V revvy.

excellent.. I think on payday im going to order about $100 worth of these batteries.

Come to find out the "****load" of batteries I had about 50% of of them wont take a charge anymore but they are old and have been in storage.

ya rechargeables go bad if they sit for long periods of time without being used, i have heard that you can freeze them and then zap them back into life. or at least that what i think i remember reading. i know there are several tutorials if you google it. you could end up with several that work.
