DX8 Specification Details..
For people who haven't seen this..here's a detailed DX8 spec list from the UK Spectrum site..but appears to be universal.
PS - ..and yes, the DX8 does run off and can be charged via wall outlet either with NiMH or Lipo batteries for very long run times.
"Smart Charge™ Global Charging System
Spektrum was the first to make frequency conflicts and interference a thing of the past. With the DX8’s new Smart Charge global charging system, Spektrum is first to make charging hassles a thing of the past, too.
This ingenious on-board charging system can be powered by any 12V power supply with a standard 4mm plug. That includes 12V power supplies from other radio manufacturers AND those that come with many household electronics. Smart Charge even detects the chemistry of the transmitter batteries you’re using (LiPo or Ni-MH)
and automatically adjusts the charge current, rate and cutoff.
With the transmitter power turned off, plug the included charger into a wall outlet. Then plug the male charge plug into the charge jack. The blue LED on the front of the transmitter should illuminate. The charger charges at a rate of 200mA and a fully discharged battery requires a 10–12-hour charge time."
