Yes. The battery should sell for about $29.95. It is a 7.4 volt 740MAH high output lipo. Comes with a balancing smart charger. It will probably be listed on the web site when there SL hydro shipment comes in.

There will be some sold as a set ( SL hydro and battery/charger) for around $99.95

Not as it comes out of the box, but if you know what your doing, and took it apart, you could probably put a plug on it. It's a balancing charger though, so it has three contacts, and is made for two cells.

The battery with charger is for sale here > [link=http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-1/qid=1152746321/ref=sr_1_1/602-0033076-1279814?%5Fencoding=UTF8&asin=B000FE7EP0]Click Me [/link] <

It has a built in safety plug.
A 3s will fry the system in the boat.

I don't know what's with the wide range in dates, Could be who order first or were you live , what store its coming from. I know the original add in backyard flyer said in August, so I was surprised to see target list them for July. Just don't know?
