How The RNB Battery Worked On My AT Pro:thumbup:

16 hours and 40 minutes got me down to 2 bars. We can only guess how many more hours the battery pack would work until it completely goes dead.Maybe another 10 or 15 hours? I am happy with mine.The real bonus for me will be hunting in the cold weather. My rechargeable Enloop rechargeables drop one bar after about 2-3 hours.

RNB is coming out with a dual charger for ATX users, so only one charger can be used instead of two to charge up a pair of battery sticks.

At that rate the RNB will be lasting 2-3 times that of my MiMH cells.
Now we have to find out how long they will last in the ATX.
Saving on opening / closing the battery compartment, and longer run times area pushing me in the RNB direction.

I am too scared to try anything other than what Garrett says to use. I just bought 5 sets of 8 Duracell rechargeables that match the ones Garrett provides. But maybe after a few years of many people using them without issues, would change my mind.
