Adept Rocketry - Accessories - Batteries and Chargers
Several Adept devices specify the use of a 9 volt alkaline battery. A typical 9 volt alkaline battery can supply about one amp of current for short periods of time, and under normal usage has a substantial lifetime. A rechargeable nickel-cadmium (nicad) battery may be used in place of an alkaline, but the battery life (charge) is only about one-third as long. However, they may be used over and over. A typical nicad, due to its chemistry, can supply two or more amps for short periods. The nicads made by GE/Sanyo are made with cylindrical cells and have a very low internal resistance. They can supply many amps for short periods, making them ideal for many rocketry uses.
