I decided to do some NiMH 'Battery Testing' for run-times. I have the White Eneloop, Blue Eneloop, Varta and Minelab-labeled NiMH batteries all charging up. Then I'm going to test each brand/model battery in a Nokta CoRe, then a Nokta Relic, and after a 3rd full charge in a Minelab Vanquish 540. I might borrow one more detector to test them all, then get their individual Run-Times and then add them up from all the detectors to get an 'average' Run-Time.

I hear so much about the Eneloop batteries that I figure a little bit of foul-weather testing while I stay shut indoors (until the detecting weather returns on Tuesday winking smiley) and out of the wet and windy weather might be a good thing to do.

I'll post the results here when I complete all my testing, and also include the mAh of each 'brand' I test. I might check with my oldest son and see if he has any different brand NiMH batteries I can borrow to add to the testing list. I'm hoping they turn out to be as good as everyone claims.

It's Nokta / Makro and Minelab's fault. N/T
