Now, 11 Detector-Tested Battery Results.

January 28, 2020 11:41PM avatar
ALL were checked for Battery Voltage at the Start, again when they Stopped, and then after 30 Minutes to Self-Restore a little.

ALL batteries were used in the very same detector (Nokta FORS Relic) with the same search coil, and maximum settings to present the greatest load on the 4 batteries.

I have listed the Batteries in order of their Longest Run-Time to the Shortest Run-Time and included Where Made and their Use-By Date, and finally the Cost-Per-Battery based upon Retail Price, not a Sale Price.

Note that the stopwatch shows Hours, Minutes and Seconds. If there were any Seconds showing, I rounded the results up 1-Minute. Voltages also rounded to the nearest ‘half’ (1.568 to 1.57 and 1.434 to 1.43, etc.).
