as far as i know the charger you got with your radio should be good enough i have sanyo 2300 nimh in my radio i have a futaba 3pk so it kills batts like no other but any 2300 nimh should be fine but you should investigate the charger ferther more cos you dont want to blow the batts before you get to use them

Those batteries are more than enought, capacity wise. I use to have a 12 volt, 1amp ac adaptor that plugs straight to my transmitter. Just make sure not to leave in unattended just until the batteries are warm.

I dont think a set of expensive rechargables will do anything for you. A set of cheap ones will last you the race weekend without charging. So why spend more money?

The need for capasity for TX's differ from TX to TX... My KO Propo Presto runs more than 12 hours constantly on, with 1100 mAh...

Because there are enough batteries in the landfills.

Quick tough answer!.. I agree that even a cheap battery for a radio can finish a race even if its partially charge..

I got some 2300Mah batts from WalMart for like $18 8 pack. The Rayovac were like $2 less and only 1600Mah. My old Rayovac Alkaline would only last about 20 min in a futaba 3pdf. Not that old could prob still find them somplaces were about $12 for a set of 8
