QED coming soon!

Global temperature goes from heat record to heat record, yet the sun is at its dimmest for half a century.
What is empirical  evidence?
Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. This data is recorded and analyzed by scientists and is a central process as part of the scientific method. Why is everything posted on climate by Inhere always horseshit?
Poor old  Inhere on finders still does not know the difference between weather and climate!The silly old goat seems to think because some places have recently had very cold weather that this brings into question  AGW!  Only right wing rabble rubbish climate deniers like horseshit Inhere don't  seem to understand  that AGW will mean that some regions of the earth will become colder!
Why is  onehalfgram :1/2 wit always wrong  on the QED?

After reading the following article on a UK forum I think I better buy the best batteries from now on   ::55::

Several months ago I made the decision to trade my Goldmax for a Tesoro Tejon pro, with a 12x10 web coil I purchased a detector from crawfords which is where I met Craig, he very kindly bolted the machine together in doing so fitted some batteries in called panasonic industrials these are freebie batteries that come with the machine, I left the shop and within a few days I was in the fields with my new Tejon Ultimate, at the time I thought the overall performance of the Tejon was adequate, I tried various set ups but I was a little disappointed with sensitivity towards small objects, your advice was very helpful, but for a high frequency machine I was not over impressed, although the depth was good I felt it could have been better, after a few more outings I decided to change the batteries, again acting under your instructions I decided to go with Energizers.

From the moment I switched the machine on I was in awe of the true potential of the machine, replacing the batteries with energizers totally transformed the Tejon, it now had the ability to detect tiny objects at great depths even as small as my little finger nail at 8-10 inches down with a crystal clear signal, the detecting was performed on ploughed land, this has been a great learning curve for me (I kinda thought that all  batteries where the same, some just lasting longer than others, I now realise that this is far from the truth) all the functions of the Tejon were greatly improved from the ground balancing to the discrimination and sensitivity etc.

 If it was a car I was talking about you would think I had just put nitro's in it. If anyone buys one of these machines make sure that you use quality batteries i.e. energizers and not freebies or budget ones, our further discussions were very interesting I think you should make more people aware of your battery tests, I cant believe a high performance 9volt battery pumps out 5.5amps where as a ordinary 9volt only pumps out 0.5/1amps. It is the amps that makes the difference.

  I have noticed the same with my VLF
detectors. The cheap batteries drop off
from their peak real fast. The detector will
still run and seem OK,but it doesn't hold
ground balance well and loses depth.

Whats most critical seems to be the amp output of the inferior batteries , I never knew this    ::54:: most VLFs have a battery check  , seems all it does is show the volts but cant check amps !

Like you said~ all seems OK until you can work out your detectors performance is poor , I,d be still fooling myself looking at the battery OK signal  confused until now
Just wonder if this affects PI units also ?

Woody would know. I hope he can make a comment on battery type and quality......  V, I and staying power. .

Recall the bloke in Illawarra recently talking about his poor 3500 making strange noises and under-performing.
It was the battery he found.

Yes he would know , cant wait for the answer now  ::38:: don't remember  seeing a ML comment about amp output-  only Volts  ?

What do you mean, why all this after-sales battery offer for say ML GP(x) detectors?

Sorry Bobby, but my English are so limited, that I am not able to explain my rhetorical question better that I am asking originally.
I apologize myself for possible disorder here.

Hmmm, well this is my take....

Bobby, you said,"Just wonder if this effects pi units also?"

Wm6 replied saying "why do you think there are so many after market battery units?" Or in other words it is possible. Speak up if I have misinterpreted what you said!

Now I am going to reply and say "It is important to have good batterys so peak coil currents can be reached however the tank capacitors in the pi transmit cct are also responsible for delivering the peak coil current and the battery just recharges the tank cap between each tx. "

 

Cheers Mick

Hi Bobby,

probably we all are in need of better battery pack (lower tension/voltage and more current).

PS: Despite my poor English, no one can sell me an ML artwork for $ 6,000.

Your English is fine , agree with the over $6000 cost for a detector that's a ?????

    Back to the subject.
If sufficient for someone detector, here can you find a powerfull Li-ion 9 cells battery, Voltage: 11.1V and Capacity: 7200mAh (mean full day of PI search):

  

for less than $50, shipping inclusive.

And here adequate charger:

  

you can easily charge it over car 12V connector (by use simple current limiter) or over an 12V car battery Solar Power Charger too.
