Default 12 volt battery Packs

I am thinking of buying the 7006 Flying Fish Hi-Speed EP Boat but notice that it comes with a 12v 2300mAh NI-CAD battery pack. I have been searching the web to see if spares are available but could not find any. Does anyone know where they are available. I found one NI-MH but that would mean buying another charger. Otherwise a might go for a MAJESTY 800s which is similar but smaller and uses 7.2 Volt NI-CAD which are easily available.

I would recommend spending the extra dollar and buying a hobby grade boat such as the Tower Turbo vee or aqua hammer.

Here's a selection

For a 7 year-old, go for a Reef Racer or Zig-Zag Racer. They're just under $80.00 RTR with all batteries and charger. They're not slow like the Department store boats and actually a lot of fun for the price. They wiil take a beating also.

12v nicads/nimh are mostly made to order or you can make it yourself. but for ease of use its better to go for whats commercially available
