Anyone know of a Low Voltage Cut Off device that I could use inside my 9C to actively disconnect the battery if the voltage drops below 9VDC?

I'm using a lipo battery and unfortunately its dead as a result of the switch being left on over night after it was stowed away.

Exactly why a large capacity NiMH is best for that application.

i have run the TX for over 12.5 hours before needing to recharge it using a lipo battery.

with the nimh batteries i used to have, i had to charge them much more frequently, even if after they sat for a week due to their high internal resistance and self-discharge rate.

all i need is a simple LVC circuit in-line with the lipo battery and it resolves this problem.
