Re: Bioenno Battery sale
Wow that chart is optimistic!toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
With my KX3 I get about 3-4 hrs with a 3 A-H battery at 5W and double that with their 6 A-H version.
Won a 12 A-H one at a local hamfest and it seems to run forever though I've not quantified it.
My guess is that their life estimates are double what I experience.
My criterion for time to recharge is when the KX3 rolls back power due to low DC input.
I run CW so SSB might give longer times.

As you know I run an IC-7300 on my activations and
I run it in contest mode, that is about 50/50 duty cycle.
I bought BLF-1230A 30 Amp hour battery and have run
maybe 15 activations with it and in my opinion I unfortunately
undersized the battery for this application. It is -my- opinion
Bioenno's 50/50 chart usage data is optimistic.
I run the radio with the speech processor on and that draws more power.
Bioenno has some usage charts you should look at
before you purchase one of these batteries.
I stand by my past comments on temperature range of Lithium batteries.

These are great portable batts; I use the 12A model - it's
