Review: The unit i have is MH-C490F Stealth and i assume they are the same specifications
I used it on an empire that uses 2 9v.
The batteries that came with this charger is rated 230mah and 9.6v.
And if i tested it on a multimeter the reading show 10v and above. wonder if this will fry the board.
However i hook up the charger to a 12v UPS battery using the cigarrette lighter plug provided and i carry the charger with me to the field in my bag. I have 3 batteries and i can charge them up on the field. My team mates are all using the same product too and they work great as we never have to hunt for cheap alkaline batteries before and during tournaments and we swap batteries as often as we can. you will not regret this and it will save you money in return. I had one in my Halo and which uses 6 AA but i made a foam compartment to replace it with the powerex 9.6v and it lasted me for 3 months which is 12 weeks and each week i use 1 bag of paintballs. so 12x 500 = 6000
next project going to hook it up to a solar panel so i dun have to charge the 12v battery.
i charge mine a day before tournament, at nights after tournaments to make sure that the next day i will get a full battery.
Conclusion: Go get it if you want to save money and have ease of mind over battery faillure
10 out of 10

I don't think the 10v potential will harm the boards. I have tested a regular fresh alkaline 9v on an accurate multi meter and it showed about 10 volts.
