Default 1400 Mah Receiver Packs???

I bought Ofna's 1400 receiver battery pack. I was excited to get a battery pack with lot's of run time.

I was wrong about the run time. I get about 45 minutes of run time with these cells. I've noted the Max mah when I charge them. They never get over 1100 mah. Most of the time it peaks at 950mah.

Has any one out there had these cells go over 1100mah ???

Being in the advertising business... it sure sounds like false product truth to me. If you paid more than an 1100 pack, demand your money back. Maybe OFNAs clocking is running a little slow... time to change there batteries ... maybe?

Try cycling the batteries about 8 - 10x. Sometimes it takes a while for the nickel-metals memory to kick in to full potential.

You will never see the true mAH rating on your charger unless you dischrge the batteries all the way to nothing. Have you discharged them completely? If so, how?

I've dumped them each time I've charged them.

Ofna has offered to exchange the pack with a new one.

Currently I've charged the pack 5 times. Only once did they peak at 1050 mah.
