Default Recharable Battery Life on the CZ 21 report

It was asked of me earlier how long the rechargeable batteries lasted on the CZ 21.

I am using Tenergy 9V rechargeable batteries purchase on line for $27. with a two 9v battery charger. I already have a two 9V charging station on my other multi battery charger. So I can charge all four batteries at the same time.

I have two 1 hour test hunts and the 7 hour hunt yesterday on these batteries. I just checked them before recharging and they were at 8.75 V each for 9 hours of hunting. I am very pleased with that.

Just for comparison, I'm getting well over 30 hours hunting time on 8 AA Enloop rechargeable batteries with my BHID300. I actually think I can get close to 60 hours per charge...

I also have rechargeables in all of my detectors with about the same results. The owners manuals of the detectors say that rechargeables will have about 1/2 the battery life, but I have not found that to be true with any of the detectors. The CZ was no exception, 1/4 V for 9 hours of hunting, not bad.

Good comparison, thanks for sharing
