    Rechargable batterys (AA type)

    As I am now going to be using my RC car more I dont want to be replacing the AA in the reciever and controler with normal ones all the time.

    Rechargeable ones are only 1.2v (Does that matter) and on ebay are loads of non branded high mAh (Last longer) ones but are they likly to be rubish?

    m8, i dont know much about batteries, but everytime i've bought some, i've always opted for lithium or alkaline ones, they seem to last longer,


    oh and branded ones seem to last longer aswell, e.g. duracell



    hope this helps

    UniRoss are the daddies of re-chargable batteries.

    Go for the highest mAh you can. I use 25000mAh in my RC car and Digital Camera. My camera eats them, them RC car handset doesn't!

    Plus treat yourself to a Digispeed 4 Ultra Charger.

    Not the cheapest but is a top quality charger, and with the right batteries can save you a fortune in the long run.

    similar query, is it possible, or do batteries such as AA even exist that can last for days, ie if a normal battery would last 4 hrs at full use, can you get them to last as i say a few days at full use?

    You can't.......

    It'll all be down to the "power" of the battery, that wh with rechargables you should get the highest mAh, as they use less energy to power the item, thus lasting longer.

    If a normal battery last 4 hours, a high powered battery would last say 6 or 8, not days.
