Default Is any company currently installing Li-Ion batteries in JR 10X transmitters?

I have three JR 10 X transmitters that gave me excellent service for years, with Li-Ion batteries installed in the original battery cases, but now the batteries need to be replaced, and the two companies that did them originally apparently don't do that anymore. I have looked for two days now, everywhere I know to look, with no results, and would certainly appreciate it if anyone can help.

Thanks in advance.

I'm betting it's easier to run a 5 second quarter mile then to get a TX li-ion. OK bad joke, you may want to check into some LiFe TX batteries. Much safer and closer to the correct voltage. Most chargers that will charge lipo and li-ion will do LiFe as well once you go into the sub menus and adjust cutoff voltage.

Thanks for the reply, speedracerntrixie. It is beginning to look like I may have to go the LiFe route. I am resisting that, because of the excellent luck I have had over the years and the hundreds of flights with all Li-Ion, in the planes and in the radios, and not having to reset the chargers, or label all the equipment as to which battery chemistry, no-fly voltage lower limits, etc.
Duralite did some of my TX Li-Ions installs, and Bern Furgang (Superbatterypacks.com) did some, but my search has, so far, not revealed a current source.
Again, thanks, and good luck with your flying.
