Received my Maha C9000 kit yesterday (about 5 days ahead of when Canada Post said I'd receive it). Thank you for record fast (and reasonably priced) shipping.
The first batteries I "tested" were some I ordered from Hong Kong via eBay. These little green devils were advertised as 3000 mAh and I thought... great! I bid on 8 of them and won them for ONE CENT plus postage ($12).
My Pentax camera is touchy about batteries. When I received these batteries, they felt really, REALLY light... about half the weight of Duracells I'd been using. I think I've discovered why. They're HALF EMPTY!. After several Refresh and Analyze cycles, and Discharge and charge cycles with the Maha, NONE of these "3000 mAh" NiMH tested above 700 mAh... SEVEN HUNDRED. No wonder they lasted about 10 shots in the Pentax. I hated to do it but all 8 garbage cells are where they should be... IN THE GARBAGE.
Even at ONE CENT I didn't get my money's worth.
BOTTOM LINE: Folks... don't waste your time with this junk on eBay like stupid me did. Bite the bullet and buy what Paul sells.
