Re: Futaba 14 sg battery lfe

On my Aurora I have a connector I simply plug my proper charger in and charge in situ. As I said, overcharging ruins batteries, a charge at 1c will ensure it peaks out and it stays in good condition. Four years and still as new. Not my advice, that came from a battery guru.

Re: Futaba 14 sg battery lfe

As I pointed out to you on FB Alan, the stock charger will just carry on charging. These batteries for 2.4 radios are not the best, they are too small.

We use these Dave. Amazingly, they work fine. You do need to alter them by removing the spring and sawing a bit of ali off it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-WALBRO-4100-41cc-3800-38cc-Chainsaw-Spare-Parts-Replacement-Carburetor-Carb/292159713056?epid=5003769677&hash=item4406136f20:g:lj0AAOSwSzR...
