Default Manual Start Box AMT 280

Does anyone know what type charger should be used to charge the 2v battery inside the start box?

Steve, Don't hold me to this but seems like I saw posted where folks was using something like the old Nova-250 for this.

Did you pop open the box to see what kind of battery it has?? I know the Data terminal has a 9v in it.

If you don't get a real answer... PM Jroth. He is a field rep for AMT, and will generally give you an answer faster than emailing US Microjet.

Last thing... if you decide to not use that engine, and want to sell it... Let me know. I wanted to buy it originally, but I didn't have the cash at the time.

Yes, I opened it and it has a Cyclon 2v 2.5A Lead Acid Battery made by HAwker.
Roy, I'll see if I can locate one of those chargers.
Thanks, Steve

Oh..... it's a 2v battery. (I don't use a ASU on my MAT's) OK....

Do you have a modern Lipo charger?? Most have a Pb setting.

Steve make sure the charger you find (Like the Nova) will let you set cell count and the 2.5 amps and it will handle the rest. At least mine does.
