    Good Battery

    posted by old4570 on 09/05/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    A decent battery. I tested @ 1A charge and discharge making no attempt to top up the batteries and got some 1900+mA from both cells. I also tested them for overall discharge capability in some 5 AA flashlights, and the BTone performed very well.
    Cons:
    Only thing I can think of its English Packaging .
