RE: What did you get today?
That's a giant pain.

Couldn't something be improvised?

I'm going to try. But this is a series mod. When dealing with that powerful a mech I don't take any chances. If I cannot get the pin right and properly insulated I will not use it.

Thank you. I left it with Albert Lee (the inventor of the B2K). He's a neighbor and mod guru. He's seeing what he can do. Fingers crossed. If he fixes it I'll probably let him have it for another set up (just in case, lol.) We trade a lot.

My 6 D cell batteries arrived today all seems fine and genuine all ranging from 1v to 1.3v so no duds just need a good charge Smile

RE: What did you get today?
With NiMH it is often a good idea to charge them for 12-24 hours after the light goes green as long as your charger understands trickle charging NiMH cells. A lot of more recent ones just stop.

This doesn't give optimal capacity bu it quicker and easier.

The capacity of an alkaline D cell is about 5000-18000mAh depending on load. At 500mA load you'll see the low end at 1mA load you'll see the high end.

All cells have a higher capacity at low loads. The example of alkaline cells is an extreme case.

I'm not sure if the SkyRC does trickle charging will have to look but the Duracell one does Smile I didn't know to leave them charging after the green light comes on you learn something new every day Smile

If they get warm, pull them off immediately. Most lithium chargers stop at full voltage, properly designed NiMH chargers will trickle at a low current of 10-20mA.
