Default M8 Rechargable Battery

I did a search and didnt come up with anything in the first 2 pages it gave. Im looking for a rechargeable battery pack for the Airtronics M8 Radio. I find them for the M11 but are they the same? Looking at lipo mainly. Just not liking the idea of 8 AA batteries rechargeable or not. But might be my only option.

No they are not the same. And honestly, its not even worth buying a lipo for a M8 because they are expensive and have very little capacity. I dont get it myself? I know they are slightly thinner, but surely someone could make a decent lipo for it. Go HERE and look at the LTS-311100. Thats the BEST lipo I've ever seen for the M8 and its only 1100mAh and its over $90 bucks!

Here's one - guess you're going to have to ask what capacity is - don't see it listed - appears it was intro'ed in 05/06, may be tough finding -

Here's the AAs- either singly or as a prebuilt pac

Yes, it does, I've just replaced the 2700 sanyo AA pac in my 3PK with a 3300mah 3S lipo. Like it so much, I've ordered another for the 3PJS I use to run my smaller scale rcs. Lasts longer, holds voltage better and is lighter to boot.

Dude, that links not too bad. Thats only $34 for the EXACT same lipo I linked to. That used to be a $94 lipo. Yeah its only 1100mAh, but its also only 34 bucks. Also, VXR is very reputable brand.

OOPS! No stock. You're right, THAT SUCKS.

Theyre not a "premium" tier lipo, but they are very good.
