Pulse 3600 2S is what I got for mine. Do a search for checking out photos of that. Its EC3 leads had to be snipped off and shrink-tubed to fit in the batt compartment. Battery door won’t close unless you buy the expanded size battery cover on eBay.

Look specifically for a 2S lipo that is designed for Tx or Rx use. A Tx lipo should have a very low C rating to avoid puffing when left fully charged for long periods of time.
a lipo that comes with an EC3 or XT60 plug will have too high of a C rating for Tx use

You'll probably need to splice on a Hitec battery connector from your old battery, or did Hitec switch to using a servo connector on the 9X battery?

Default Pulse battey for Aurora 9X

In a Hitec Mfg forum in RCG, this topic was discussed. I had an image of it that I posted there.

The Pulse battery is a snug fit without the EC3 connectors, but it does come with a JR-styled connector that slides in without issue. Just insure correct polarity when inserting connector.

The other item that will prevent cutting off any cables is this Expanded Battery Cover for Hitec Aurora 9X.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Expanded-Ba...wAAOSwJWBcULBQ


I have both and both are doing very well. I can use my EC3 charge cable to charge. REMEMBER to change the TX settings from NiMH to LiPo.

Post what you decide to do.

Pulse 2550 RX pack. The standard servo type connector will plug right into the pins on the PCB. I balance charge through the EC3 plug.

Contact Hitec Support. Batteries America may have a compatible Nimh pack for 9X
