Press Release: Audiophile Batteries - Page 2

post #16 of 29
I just got my hip new 1800mah NiMH AA PowerEx batteries from thomasdistributing.com I also got a nice new charger with a conditioning circuit. I also got some nice 700 mah NiMH AAA batteries. The new powerex batteries boast a very low impedence, around 15-17mOhms. All this is well and good, and I feel like an improvement has been made to my total airhead. Also, they last longer than alkalines, and i don't have to keep buying them over and over.

However, the low point in my audio life came the other day when I looked at my girlfriend's batteries for her digital camera, and found that they were only 1600mah, then i proceeded to laugh at her, and boasted that MY batteries were fully 200mah better! She just looked at me like I was an idiot.

Oh well, I like my batteries anyway

Peace,
phidauex

New York, NY - Is your audio forum getting dull and lacking interesting controversies? No good flame wars lately? Need some lively debate? You need new Audiophile Sceptic! Audiophile Sceptic is a new application to be run in conjunction with your hi fi forum software. It has these features:

I'm assuming this word is a combination of :

Skeptic -- Someone who has a lot of doubts

&

Septic -- The tank that the toilet discharges into

"Sceptic" is the spelling used in the English-speaking world. "Skeptic" is used exclusively by Americans.

Ross,

You've got it all wrong there mate. The English that "us Americans" use is spoken by 70% of the English speaking population. The dialect of British English is spoken by 17% of the English speakers. So while you in Australia (which, btw, has it's own dialect, Australian English) may use sceptic, I, gaineso, and 70% of the "English-speaking world" will continue to use the most common form, "skeptic". Read up a little on it here.. G'day mate.


BTW USA SOCCER KICKS ASS!!!!!

I find those 17%/70% figures very suspicious, given that British English is the basis of the English spoken in British Commonwealth countries which have a total population of 1.7 billion, compared to the US' 250 million.

Add in us 25 million Canadian for skeptic as well. And I'm pretty sure Canada spells everything the Britishway... :P

Canada vs. USA

sometimes your Sceptic will tell you he's an engineer, but really he will just be a technician
I guess you are talking about me. If so, I can mail you a copy of my engineer title, obtained after several years of study at the University.

Cheap talk again?


Aside from that, funny post.

Actually, I wasn't talking about you - that post pre-dated the latest "cable factor" thread, but in hindsight it looks like a pretty accurate description of what followed.
