Default Hobbico Hydrimax Ultra Batteries.

Is it worth getting Hobbico Hydrimax batteries instead of a NiCad battery. How often do the Hydrimax's have to be cycled compared to NiCad's. I want a low maitainance battery.

I use Sanyo 1650 mah NiMh packs from Dave at Radical RC. His prices (and shipping) just can't be beat.
They are somewhat lower maintenance, but it is always good to cycle a battery every so often to check on capacity.
These can be charged with the standard wall wart 50 ma charger, but it will take 2 days to charge from dead.
