Default where to buy battery packs

I am currently using 8.4v 1000mah NiMh battery packs with my GWS Zero (Stock). They are 2/3 A cells and I think the pack is a little heavy - around 5.5 oz. I would like to find something lighter and with 9.6 volts. At this time I want to stay with the NiMh. Li-pos in the future.

Any recommendations on a good place to buy a couple battery packs? Also, what sizes are being used - AAA?

One of my favorite NiMH packs for GWS EPS-300C or 350C power systems is the 8-cell, 800mAH, 5/4AAA NiMH pack from Hobby People. This 8-cell pack is also sold at Batteries America and it weighs only 4.1oz.

Good luck!

You might want to do a search for cheapbatterypack and see how these batteries have been holding up.
