ua-5 power
« on: October 20, 2003, 04:08:57 PM »
I see that oade sells battery packs for the ua-5 and they are 12 volts.   Why does it seems like everyone make packs out of rc 9.6v batteries if you can use a 12 volt sla???  What am I missing??  ???

Because 9.6v NiMH packs are smaller, lighter, and cheaper.  I don't know why anyone would want to deal with SLA's to power a ua5 unless you already had a 12v system for some other gear.

So glad I don't have to haul around lead... My Rakgear's heavy enough as it is!
Governor Jim McGreevey was equally disturbed about the upcoming population increase. "New Jersey cannot support all of these wookies," he said. "For starters, we don't have nearly enough kindbud. At best, we can muster up a Q.P. of some beasties, but we've not a dime-bag more."
