Dear davidpc2, I personally recommend using reliable Lipo or LIFE type batteries, say 2-5 c rating. Do not allow more current to pass through the components of TX. High current entering into a TX and its sensitive components will sure impact the TX in short or long run. I use HYPERION batteries, from KOREA low current rating. Also use LIPPY for my JR RADIO9X, quite good and happy with this. Do not spend time time doing R & D if you can get a good battery with in build regulator. Happy Flying
Thanks nrajesh, as it was a new question, I didn't saw it, and was not notified to my email. I will keep waiting for a flat LiFe pack on 3S for Tx.
As I said, I had a problem with a Tx and will not try again, just in case. Your answer has given my Tx more life... :) Cheers
Hi Davidpc2, you can't damage a tx because of the c-rating. Your previous tx was mostly damaged due to the higher voltage of a lipo as compared to Life batt. A fully charged 3S lipo is typical at 12.6V while a fully charge 3S LiFe batt is typical at 10.6V. Check the no. of 1.5V batt your TX is currently using. If it is using 8x1.5v nimh cells, then using a lipo is possible. If it is using 6x1.5v nimh cell, then you are safer off using a LiFe batt instead.
boa para seu baixo preço, e qualidade a light max é otima bateria dura muito tempo e nao estufa e nem esquenta se voar muito tempo

I use it on a easystar 2,at peak power the plane takes approx. 15A and i can fly for more then a half hour.It has already survived more then one crash.I also use it to power the receiver of an FPV system.I accidently drained the battery completly and no damage! (I never use lipo,only LifePo4 from hobbyking).
