I’ve been using Batteries America for my flight packs and Kraft 7C transmitter for eighteen plus years. I decided it was time to change the battery in my Futaba 9C now that it is back in use and at the same time do my Futaba 12FG. The 12FG battery is no longer stocked by Tower, so I decided that with my good experience with Batteries America I would use them for both transmitters.

I ordered them turnkey with connecters and upgraded the 9C from 700mAh to 1100mAh and the 12FG from 1700mAh to 2150mAh. I didn’t want to upgrade the mAh too far because I want to use the original Futaba battery chargers. As usual they did a really nice job on the construction of the packs and they dropped right in and fit like the original Futaba battery.

I trust battery manufacturers, but just in case, I always check the voltage polarity at the plug on new pre-wired battery packs with a volt meter.

Even though Batteries America uses brand name good quality components you can expect some cost savings compared to Futaba batteries.

I get my Sanyo 2/3 sub C nicads from Batteries America for my Kraft radios. Great service and you can see their fully stocked booth at the WRAMS show, Toledo and Oshkosh. Their products are first class.
