John, i use the 1600 from maxxpack. the Xcal II has a 1000 mah and the blue is a 700 mah. simple to do, just use a little RTV silicon to complete the seal and attach the black cap back. I highly recommend you get the charger if you get either. The smart chargers charge in about an hour and has a light and WILL shut off when charged. The standard charger if used on the 1600...... will take FOREVER to charge. more than enough hours of hunting. The lith is a little more pricy if cost comes into play, and i dont think you can use a standard charger on them because of a third wire that checks each cell to ensure they are fully charged. Either will give you more hours than you need out there. Ive used their batteries that they make for an ET/Explorer....... great batteries, no complaints.
