New rechargeables for the V3700's

Post by GHOSTMAN on Fri May 10, 2013 7:08 pm

I grabbed these up instead of buying the high dollar lithium's for the slaves every 3 weeks or so. The voltage is what the slaves need to recharge the big capacitors that are in the unit. These have only 500 life cycle charges compared to the more charge cycles the Enloop's have. The Enloop's only carry a 1.2v rating which I don't prefer for the slave bank. I change out batteries every weekend so a LSD type battery really doesn't matter in my application. 16 batteries were $50.00 + free shipping. I have to purchase 32 more of these so I'll have a set to replace the ones I remove each weekend when all 3 V3700's are running.

I'm using Rayovac alkalines for the internal boards and sister boards for now and will graduate to Enloop's for them once the 1.6v batteries are purchased. Gotta cut the battery $$$ weekly monster and concentrate on the $$$ going to food for the deer instead cause the babies are coming soon and momma doe's need nutrients for high power milk dispensing.

Oh yeah as a FYI, you must use a NiZN battery charger to recharge these because of the higher voltage of the batteries. The NiMH 1.2v smart chargers will burn up or ruin the batteries.
I picked up a 12 bay Tenergy 1.2v smart charger also for the next batch of LSD 1.2v NiMH's for the internal control and sister boards.
