Zippy Flightmax batteries deliver full capacity & discharge as well as being the best value batteries in the hobby market today!The Zippy Flightmax 2500mAh Transmitter pack fits snuggly into any Futaba or Jr radio which takes a 4x4 AA cell battery configuration (see image). With a capacity of 2500mAh this lipoly replacement for your old NiCD or NiMH will last four to five times longer. Probably the best advantage with a lipoly transmitter battery is that it will give a true voltage reading from start to finish which means you can say goodbye to the days where you thought your Transmitter was fully charged at home, only to find the voltage drop off rapidly when at the field.

Lipos require more care when charging than regular rechargable AA batteries. The cells must be balanced or they can over/under-volt and blow up... The standard charger port does not regulate the voltage to each cell like a Lipo charger does.
This Zippy works with the Turnigy 9x without modification. Use the smaller white plug and insert it into the right side of the TX power connector so the red wire is in the middle/ black is to the right. I put a little tape around the wires so they stay together. "Like a glove" target=_blank>Zippy with 9x
I ended up snipping the jst-xh connector on the turnigy 9x so the small white connector on the battery could fit with the right polarity. I almost broke of the battery connector on the turnigy 9x though.
I used the black (servo type) plug at first but I was afraid it would damage my battery or I would accidently reverse the polarity. What I was replace the little white connector with the one from the original battery holder. the wires held ok. To be safe I used a little hot glue on the back of the connector. All is good. I had it almost a year now.
If your charger needs both the balance and power leads connected to it to work you need one of www.link the connector from a wall charger soldered to a female deans. Then plug it into the transmitter charge port. Be sure to get the polarity correct.
Haha... 7.5A is the same that 4 servos draw at max usage :)
Picked up one of these for my Turnigy 9x, fits perfectly in the battery bay. All cells balanced at 3.8v upon arrival. Holds a charge forever in my Tx. Only con is that I had to change the plug to fit the 9x.

Great Battery!!! Actual weight is 235 grams. I used this one with my quad multicopter. Outside, with temperature -5C to 15 C. No problems at all, balancer shows 2450 mAh capacity. Hopely some day batteries with this capacity will be lighter. Lighter battery - more fly time.

Great pack for a Turnigy 9x, fits perfectly in the bay with enough room to tuck the balance/charge plugs to one side.
There's no need to switch the connector either! The black connector fits on to the existing pins without requiring any modifications, just match up the orientation using the color of the wires on the 8x AA pack (so that red connects to the ve and black fits to -ve).
The battery seems to last forever too! Good bye Duracells!!!
