Does anyone have any experience with this battery. It's on sale at the duralite website, but it seems that every different company comes out with their own balancing taps and connectors. Or is that a simple soldering iron fix once a specific charger has been selected.. Also, I've never used a paralleled pack before. How does charging affect that? (if these seem like dumb questions, it's because I'm new at this side of the electric fence.)

Perhaps Admin would consider making this link a stickie or something that appears on the main page.

It is a very good resource and along with the forum members taught me what I now (I think) know.

Found a posable fault or Incorect Asumption in form "item_1195.pdf" page 3 4th paragraph saying "The primary attraction for Ni Mh was lighter weight and better enviromental charicteristics."

I think it grew due to not needing to be cycled. has a highter volume capacity,
"to say we realy care about the enviroment is a wonderfully hopefull and optamistic, wish. realy. which brady wrote that." NB I find it pleasing that Ni Mi Is better for the enviroment and even more so that the wide streem consumer market items using bateries, now have a better choice where weight is not a concern. think of all the things that use AA bats and now think of all the people who will soon discover that Ni Mh has a longer usage life (Not Shelfed charge) IE 2500mha over a 600-1000 for NiCd, now if this were the other way around do you think that people would realy chose NiMh just because it is good for the enviroment ?

Who knows and who cares right ?
