Torfino Enterprises, Inc. has tested and approved rechargeable batteries and chargers from I-Power for use in the METAL-TEC and ICE Light products.  Although our products have been designed to use a standard disposable 9V alkaline battery, when rechargeable batteries are required we have found the I-Power Lithium polymer battery offers the maximum run time on a single charge and is far superior to anything else that is currently available.  For more information regarding our findings on rechargeable batteries please click here for our full report or click here to obtain iPower Batteries.
