Default M8 question

Buying an M8 and was wondering if there was a cheaper/better alternative to the Airtronics rechargeable setup. They want about 50 bucks for the battery plus the cost of the charger and its only around 700mah.

I saw somewhere people were using the 1800mah Orion AAs, is there a way I can charge these on a Super Brain 959 without soldering them together making a pack?

Appreciate any suggestions, Aaron.

You can get the battery tray which you can get the adapter to fit in the bottom of the battery tray. Then, as long as your charger is capable of charging 8 cells, then you will fine.

go to radio shack and you can get a tray for 8 AA batts, with knobs on the top for pos. and neg. If you use the airtronics tray pluging in at the bottom, you run the risk of melthing it
