I think only a 6 cell will fit. Also I don't think a 9.6 lasts any longer than a 7.2. If you want to go longer between charges your going to want a higher capacity a 2200 vs. A 1600 the 2200 is going to last longer between charges

Hmmm..... A friend of mine said a 9.6v battery is much better for the ez start because it generates much more power so you can start up the engine more easily.

Only a 6 cell will fit in the starter wand. My battery is only a 1600 mAh and its does fine when i had the EZ start system on it.
