Default Who makes a great long lasting battery for the Futaba 9Z WCII?

I'd like some back-up batteries and would like to know if somebody makes a battery pack with more Mah than the standard 1100.

Thanks,
Mark

I run the Radical RC 1650 Mah NiMh pack in my 8U and 388, it lasts several flying sessions between charges. Not sure if the 9Z has the same type of pack, but this is a great pack for the computer radios I have.

Another happy www.radicalrc.com user. I also bought the 1650mah NiMh for my 9C. I'm sure they have something for your 9Z. But if you can't find anything, you might as well give up and send it to me

www.batteriesamerica.com has 1650 packs as well. All made with Sanyo cells and they have all of the transmitter connectors. Been very happy with them.

a third vote for the Radical RC 1650 NIMH packs. I have one in each of my 10X radios.



Took a little soldering work to get them in there, but well worth the effort. Can't remember the last time I needed to charge my transmitters in the field - which is good!

Mike
What do you use tho charge those 1650 mah NIMh battery packs. Will the wall wart that comes with the raidio do it. I am useing a Cirrus charger now which I like and would sure hate to have to buy anlother charger.
