PostSubject: HBFP using rechargeables in transmitter   Sun Apr 05, 2009 5:09 am

I'm interested in if anyone has tried 1.2v Nimh AA's in the HBFP transmitter? Since I have purchased a souped up charger I'm interested in changing as many things as possible to rechargeable. I have searched online for information on this and have come up empty. Hopefully someone has tried it here. I suspect that the .3v per cell diference may add up to too low a voltage for the transmitter.

Thanks for any info! Curt

Stick them in the transmitter and see what kind of battery lights you have. If you have green lights, use it till you get down to yellow. I have some of the 1.2v batts for some solar landscape lights, but I've never used them in my transmitter.

I bought a set of 12 AA's and a charger from a Hong Kong site on Ebay. It will only charge 4 batteries at a time and it takes 4 hours for those 4 batteries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would like one 12VDC battery that can be charged through the charging jack on the transmitter. There MUST be such an animal out there.

In an effort to get closer to the 12v, maybe one of those 11.1? Lipo packs would fit inside the battery compartment and we would just have to fabricate a simple connection.

Maybe? Curt

I use Radio Shack rechargable batteries, they're 1.2v, have never had any problems yet, Radio Shack even has a 30 min fast charger, all at a good price

I'm going to pick up some AA size rechargeables and try them in the transmitter and also some other devices we use around the house. Thanks for your information!

KODAK - that 12 volt plug on the transmitter IS NOT A CHARGING JACK - that is a test hook up for the factory to check the transmitter to make sure it works smokingele = VIC

You are wrong! It is charging jack. I charge my batteries with it. On controller is written 'charge' near the jack

On the Walkera Tx, the Tx uses a JST connnector. POP out the 12 "AA" battery carriage and replace with a standard 11.1v LIPO that uses a standard JST connector. Tape the back and you are good to go. A lighter weighing Tx as a result and is also rechargable with the 2-3 cell Walkera Ga-003 LIPO Charger.
