PostSubject: Tank Batteries?   Mon May 21, 2012 3:56 pm

I was hoping some of you could share some tank battery success stories, both brands of batteries and suppliers.

I am tired of having one of my too extensive collection of 2000 Ah batteries die part way through a battle Sad

Airbrusher nicely loaned me Super Power 7.2 V 3800 AH Ni-MH to try on May 19th, I just wanted to see what else anyone has had some luck with.

i don't know if it was fully charged Glen they didn't seem to have a lot of power so do these batteries charge the same way as the HL ones or do they require longer charging i need to test them further and find out

Hay Greg if you used the HL charge you have to leave them on for a long time and I would recommend a good hobbie charger.

My good battery is the Dynamite Speed Pack 4500mAh.
It was an impulse buy after I went to my first battleday... "hey I want the good stuff the big boys have!"

....$39.99 later I think it was worth it.

Glen, I have two of these ones.

And they always last a whole battle day in one tank. Very Happy

Thanks, thats a trusted supplier, too.

How do they compare in size to the HL battery? Just wondering how easy they are to get into the battery compartment on a HL.

They are the exact same size.

It took me a while to compare them, I haven't used my HL batteries in such a long time I forgot where they where. Embarassed

I usually get a whole Battleday worth out of mine, but I'm sure the exact time limit, I'm only running during battles.
