Ni-MH Advice Please
« on: June 27, 2020, 11:07:11 am »

I am a complete novice !


I have been given a Pro Boat Volere launch which is several years old now for which I need a new battery.


The original battery I have is now discontinued and was replaced in later models.  The battery I have is a Pro Boat 8.4V 1600 mAh 'hump back' with, I believe, Tamiya connector.  Part no. PRB3051


Where would be the best place to look for one or is there a suitable alternative.  It would have to be fairly small and this shape as space is rather limited or is there an easy conversion I could do ?


Many thanks.

This is a popular and reliable UK supplier. All of the dimensions of each pack are shown if you click the blue Learn More link. The pack I've linked to seems to be an exact replacement for the Pro Boat one, although they are temporarily out of stock. You could E-Mail them to ask when more are expected or if they could make one up for you
