Default JR PCM10 Batteries

I have an older JR PCM10 radio. Ihave a 9.6 volts 1100mah NiCAD battery running it. Can I use a Duralite Plus Lithium-ion 11.1 volts 1300mah? Can the radio handle this higher voltage? Any information will be appreciated. Thanks Tim

I have two JR XP9303's which have been running 3cell LiPo Tx packs for 4 years. I have had no problems, however, JR cautions that some components may be affected by the higher voltage. You have the option of only charging up the batteries to 11.7v or you can install one or more Diodes, inline, with the Positive lead from the battery, to drop the voltage .3v per Diode. There are other threads on this subject.

LiPo's or LithIons charge faster and holder their charge for months. I fly almost every day and I only have to charge my Tx once every two weeks. It usually only takes 15 minutes with a good LiPo charger like the FMA 4S or 10S. Eneloops are an acceptable backup, but I still like Lithiums.
