Default Reedy LiFe 6.6V 250mAh RX Battery Or voltage booster?

My Novak battery booster for SXX v3 kicked the bucket, so I was wondering what the benifit would be running the Associated Reedy LiFe 6.6V 250mAh RX Battery over another voltage booster for my 1/12 scale. Please weigh in.

I wa going to fit a lipo receiver pack until I realised that if I forgot to charge it it could end badly.

I bought an RCDynamics booster which a lot of 1/12 drivers in the UK run, including Elliot Harper at the worlds!

Second for the RCDynamics booster. The majority of UK 1/12th racers use it if they don't have a 1S ESC. Can't rememeber the last time I saw a 1/12th car with a receiver pack.

It really comes down to personaly choice, I've been running the TQ booster for many yrs with no issues. For me the booster is a no brainer, I only have one charger and I dont want to have to buy another just to charge the rec pack. Besides as another said I dont have to worry about forgetting to charge it.
