The Turnigy 2650mAh Transmitter pack fits snuggly into any Futaba or Jr radio which uses a 4x4 AA cell battery configuration (see image). It includes discharge plugs for both JR, Spektrum plus other radios. It's built with a low C-rate Long Life LiCo Formular which isn't like a standard LiPo. It retains voltage for months on end without need for a storage charge so you can store your radio and fly once a month and not have to worry about discharging or recharging your pack.
With a capacity of 2650mAh 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.
My battery seems to be deffective. When I measure over the main leads I get a reading of 4.16 volts and the highest voltage I can get by measuring over the different poles on the balance plug is 7.68 volts. My charger does not want to charge the battery because of connection break.
JR/Spekrum type discharge plug. A small white two pin plug that orientates with two off centered bars on the outside. All these TX batteries comes with one. I use the turning 2400mah NiMH cells to make up my own 9.6v TX packs. So I need to buy them loose, prefibly in a packet of 5-10 units.
To balance charge you are required to plug in the balance plug and main plug. I normally charge my batteries via a balance charge unless I need to charge them quicker. You are not able to charge a battery as quick on balance charge compared to normal charge. This is a limitation of the charger and the wire used on the balance plug.
You should have a Balancer set of plugs that are designed for 2,3,4.5.6...S pack or so! that is where you need to plug the balancer and the big red and black leads have to be connected to the battery output leads! Now for the selection of what battery, S count you need to read your manual to learn the programming part of your charger, if you need to find them and purchase the product here you will find the manual in PDF Form on a blue or violet tab that say files under the price of the charger! Hope you can use this information and consider to award credit for it.
With this battery pack any plug which should be "JR/Spektrum" with only two wires going to it is your main lead and the plug "JST-XH" with four wires going to it is your balance lead. With my transmitter battery I always charge it to a storage charge to use it unless I am having a big flying day then a full charge. With LiPo batteries they do not like to be stored at full charge for a extended period of time. They like to sit at around 50%. A good practice is to charge batteries to a storage charge if your charger allows and then the day before flying fully charge them.
Can someone just tell me what adapter I need to charge this? A part number would be great! I understand the whole balance plug concept, but it doesn't have the a typical xt60 or hxt connector so i assume
there is an adapter I need to connect the black lead to my charger.
Nice battery. Fits perfect in my airtronics RD 6000 and 8000. As well as my graupner mx24-s.

The battery came with the output polarity reversed. Damaged my Transmitter and now HobbyKing does not want to stand behind their product. If I could give this battery negative stars I would, along with their lack of support for a manufacturing defect. Hobby King is off my list of places to purchase.
