I've tried the 300mAh Maha 9volt with mixed results. I bought 3 last
year and initially they were quite reliable. After a few months
however, 2 of the batteries melted......i kid you not. The outer
casing shrivelled/wrinkled spewing out the contents of the battery (a
white powder substance....the Nickel Hydride i presume). These events
took place 3 months apart and lucky for me, they were just sitting on
my shelf at the time. The distributer did exchange them but; I'm too
scared to stick them in any kit.
I've found these alternatives http://www.batteryspace.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=2644
which are ok. The build quality is a little dubious;(the negative
terminal bends far too easily); but i get about 2hours 30 minutes from
my Lectro's (UH400A) running phantom at 48Volts. Had them for 8 months
and no problems so far.
I also own i-power 500 and 520mAh batteries,and can get almost 6 hours
powering my Lectro LMa's. I don't use the i-powers in my UH400A as
they simply don't want to work (they shut down unexpectedly.......to
this day i still can't figure out why.....ho hum).
