[Good show Gregg---GOOD SHOW!!!-----Joes RNB batteries are GREAT (the best)!-------I do however have one question & I'm about embarrassed to ask it!-----Say your rechargeable pack does run down (or goes gunny bags)-----How do you afford to buy all those many (8 AA batteries a shot) for the M6/MXT????-----Here's my MAIN question: If'n I went this (attractive) route your on---do you think I would have to come out of retirement in order to buy all those batteries---or???-----I'm just a poor ole man on a fixed income so that is DEFINITELY one thing I would have to take in consideration.----Hey, thanks MUCHO in advance for your input on this!

Ya, I agree Del, the RNB's are great. I love them.

But let's say my RNB goes gunny bags. It's $149 to replace it. At an average cost of 36¢ a battery ( job smarts from Tractor Supply) that is approx 413 AA batteries.

413/8 = 51.6 refills for the Whites machines that use 8 batteries. With an average run time of 30 hrs ( not including the V3i) that is approx 1548 hrs of detecting. Or just under 10¢ per hour to operate the machine with batteries. Approx half the cost when I use the Relic & Core with only 4 batteries and still the same run time.

Now if ya wanna calculate the gas & times I have driven 100-200 miles to only bring home an IH Penny or ol' V nickel or worse yet......skunked.............lets just say I don't wanna figure up the average cost of my finds........I do think it is more than 10¢ per hour smiling smiley
