I use rechargeable alkaline. They provide the full 1.5 volt where nicads provide 1.2v?

And I also use a standalone charger, a holdover from my electric cars

What charger are you using? I use Nihms myself, without any problems.

I got a set of N mH, 1.2 v, 800mA AA's from Harbor Freight on Monday. Using the charger that came with the Blade, had to put a different connector on it. the center post on Tx is negative. Charged overnight, have four flights so far, all lights still on. Only $12 for the batts.

I put 8 1.2v ni-cd in my transmitter. But I was not able to charge them through the jack on the transmitter.
I will check the polarity on the charger and see if that is the problem.

Keep in mind that the charge jack in the Eflite transmitter is reverse polarity (compared to Futaba).

I have always used 8 Energizer 1.2V NiMh rechargeables in my transmiter that have a 2500 mAh rated capacity. I either us a Engerizer fast charger to charge them outside the radio or a fast peak NiMh charger plugged to the radio.

I got the batteries and the charger at Wal-Mart. I think a 8 pack of the 2500's runs around $17.00. I've never counted, but I would guess I'm getting around 15-25 flights before the Tx batts need recharging.

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

I use 8 2500 mah NiMH batteries I got at Fry's. I have to remove them from the tx to charge them because my charger only charges 4 at a time. Not really a problem as long as I do this the night before flying. I've never kept track of how long they last, but I could go for more than a week flying daily and all the LEDs would still be lit. Now I don't worry about it because I programmed my Optic6 Tx to fly my BCP and that Tx has a 2000 mah NiMH pack in it.
