Carl Metlay said in part…
First off… “Welcome to our little forum”.
My #13 iCellTech HA batteries bought through Local Battery (who’s the sponsor of this web site), cost me 27 cents each… and lasts for three weeks or so. At 54 cents per 3 Weeks it costs me $14.58 a year to power my HA’s.
Divide my $14.58 yearly cost into your $150 and I would have to go 10 years plus before I even started to break even… and that’s not considering the fact that the rechargeable batteries would have to be replaced a number of times within that same 10 year period at $3.40 each.
One would have to purchase a total of 6 rechargeable batteries over that same 10 years if they lasted 3 years each. That’s now a additional $20.40 on top of your original $150.
The approx $175 that I would have to spend now places me at about the 12 year break even point… not with standing the charger breaking/burning out before I even get to 12 years.
NO… I’ll stay with [URL="[Local Battery](http://www.localbattery.com/). It’s hard to improve on perfection when your the best.
