I have not tried that one, but I do use the Capricorn one. It is a 1650 and it last a long time. The one in my sedan has been there for 1 year with no issues and i am now using it in my 1/8 and am very happy.

The only life battery i had that was worth it are from intellect. Most if they give you a season they wont make it over the winter to next season.

You can get them on ebay.

Guess I will have to try this one out. I did not have a lot of luck with the Orion LiFe Rx pack when I tried it in my 200mm and GT cars.
