I was thinking along the same lines, aricooperdavis . . . I'd be interested to see what state it's in – if you get it back, mdhs.

From what I've heard about Ultrafire batteries...



I'd give up on it and buy some decent batteries next time!

I think perhaps it is more a concern of the littering in a cave.

Its a Chinese mining technique. Drill your round of shot holes, and instead of Anfo or whatever, you stuff them with Ultrafire Li Ion batteries.
You don't even need a det, just use your command wire to short them out.
Looking forward to NAMHO 2019. www.cambrianmines.co.uk
