The German company Conrad have some 9V LiIon cell in their range of batteries, this is the high capacity version.
Overcharge protection on the A cell kicks in at 8,49 volt and over discharge protection at 5,67V
Overcharge protection on the B cell kicks in at 8,51 volt and over discharge protection at 5,56V
There is some difference in capacity between the two cells. Both cells handles load fine, even at 500mA, the capacity is also more than rated.
These batteries have more than double capacity compared to NiMH 9V batteries and are close to a alkaline battery at low load and this battery will maintain high capacity and voltage at high load.
In moderate to high load situations this looks like a good replacement for alkaline.
