Virtue board with rechargable battery

I was wandering if a 8.7 v rechargable battery is ok to use in a virtue board?

Usually not as the boards are meant for the 9.6v batteries. The voltage of the rechargeable may not be enough to power the board and solenoid or cause sporadic issues with cycling.

But a 9.6 rechargeable is ok. Someone told me that they can fry the boards

A 9V alkaline battery will measure ~ 9.5V when new.
A 8.4V (nominal) rechargeable NiMH battery will measure ~9-10V (and peak at 10.5V) when fully charged, depending on manufacturer.
A 9.6V (nominal) rechargeable NiMH battery will measure ~10.5-11V (and peak at 12V) when fully charged, depending on manufacturer.

You'd have to know the exact voltage regulator on the board to see if they can handle the 11 or 12 volts coming out of a rechargeable.

I guess the whole reason I'm asking is cause I have a virtue board for my shocker and I have stinger grips. With a regular Duracell battery the grips will have a gap between them and the frame puting pressure on the oled screen which could break it. I've tried a rechargeable battery and it fits good cause the battery is a little thinner. But I haven't tried a alkaline battery yet.

The duracell should be an alkaline.

Rechargeable lithium? I don't think so. Don't take my word for it though. I learned about batteries through R/C electronics.

Not rechargeable lithium . Just regular lithium are they a little thinner than regular duricell

Looks like (non rechargeable) lithiums start at ~9.6V.
Similar to the 8.4V nimh rechargeables.

With those I'm not worried about power just thickness. Regular duricell r to fat for the grips. Hope the lithium are a little thinner.
