    Important Powerbox question!

    I recently purchaced a Powerbox Royal but didn't notice until now that it was built specificly for Lipo batteries or related. I use the JR 4500Nimh 6v Rx packs they sell for their power redundant systems. Can I NOT use these batties I just purchased? Is the voltage too low for the system to run properly. The system has been acting goofy during my setup stage. Powerbox super users, please help me.

    Yep.... Just picked up some A123 packs. If anyone is in need of 4500mah 6v Nimh JR packs. I just purchased two from Dreamworks for $72 each and have changed out the plug to a deans connector. I will sell the pair for $100.

    Try $10 per pack.....
    NIMH are old news, you better off just putting them in the draw for something else,
    Personaly i would have went with LiIon's from troy built 5600mah packs for less price

    Just my opinion -
