Lithium Ion @ Radio Shack

Hi All,

I've found some 3.6v lithium ion batteries at Radio Shack. Rated 1300+ mah. $8-9. Look to be around 2/3aa size. Are these any good for a (1) Zagi or (2) Lite-Stik? What can I use to charge them?

Thanks for all the great info.

Chris

Do they say li-ion, I'm willing to bet you've got primary non-rechargable batteries. I've never seen individual cells for sale anywhere, let alone the ratshack.

Lithium Ion ---OR--- Lithium?

Lithium Ion is rechargeable.

Lithium cells are not.

Be careful, you may end up with a very fast, very fun, very light, very expensive flight.
