These Hitech 9 Volt Lithium Ion batteries are the perfect companion to the Hitech 9V Lithium-Ion Smart Charger. You can have your reserve batteries charging while you are using the others.
Given the technology behind these batteries, a standard NiMH/NiCd charger will NOT charge this battery. You need a charger designed for Li-Poly/Li-Ion batteries. The charger we offer that will charge this battery is our 2 Bank 9 Volt Battery Charger.
Charging this in a charger not designed for Li-Ion batteries will cause fire or explosion. Charging this battery in a NiMH/NiCd charger will void your warranty.
Important note about the voltage of this battery: Rechargeable batteries, like this 9V-size Lithium Ion battery, are rated at a lower voltage than their Alkaline-based alternatives. If your application absolutely requires a full 9 volts to operate, rechargeable batteries may not work for you. Please view the datasheet or give us a call at 1-800-405-2121 for further information.
If your device has a charge indicator, this battery will most likely not show a "full" charge when installed. These indicators are calibrated for alkaline 9 volt batteries, which, by design, have a higher initial voltage level than a fully charged rechargeable battery. The battery will work, but the indicator will display inaccurate results.
