Thanks, I'm interested in finding out about those 3000mAh. I just bought the 1000mAh Ni-cd w/ charger and 1600mAh ni-mh from radioshack this weekend. I'd need a different charger for the 3000mAh's won't I?

I'm in New Brunswick on contract until the end of April, then back in Ontario for a while.

Bit of a delay on the battery pack too, because these nylon connectors i picked up aren't the right type, and no one in town carries what I need (apparently the connectors on the battery packs are called Tamiya connectors, correct me if i'm wrong), so I had to order them.  I just hope I ordered the right thing this time, since according to the fedex tracking, my rig is due to arrive tomorrow :)

I'd return that Radio shack stuff if you can.  Nicads just don't have enough capacity.  We should update Jordan's page to reflect the reality of Nickel Metal Hydride batteries.

You don't need Tamiya connectors - doesn't fit the UA-5 anyways.  That's just a convenient way of connecting the battery to the charger and anything will do, as long as they match.  If you're not in a rush, I can probably do up a battery pack and charger for you with the right connectors for the UA-5.  Less than $40 CDN for sure.  PM me if you want.

No difference in the charger required - just takes longer to charge a 3000.
