Default Transponder

Hey guys, I am sure there is nothing wrong with this, but just want to get some reassurance. Can a transponder be connected directly into a receiver battery and run across the loop just to check that it works. Nothing wrong with connecting straight to the battery right?

Should be ok but why not just plug it into a receiver and test it why risk it?

No problem there. Just make sure you get the polarity right!

Yes you can Directly plug it into the pack. I have done it a few times.

You can't do it because the plug on the battery and the transponder are the same and will not plug together
