I"m going to get a slayer and I've been wondering how long the double AA batterys in the car's receiver will last before they need to be replaced. I know there is a rx rechargable pack you can buy, but I'm short on money so I'll have to use double AA's. Does anyone know how long they will last?
Just depends on use and how strong your servos are. flat pack is not that much more than a pack of AA batterys. And the big plus of a rx pack is that it runs 6volts.
You could get some rechargeable AA batteries and a wall charger for around 20.00 at walmart or amazon

I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran
4 AA is 4volts
My bad. Was too lazy to check
Well, ok, but can someone PLEASE just anwser my question? How long WILL the AA batterys last in the receiver before they need to be replaced? I KNOW the rechargeable packs (including rechargable double AA's) is better, BUT HOW LONG WILL THE DOUBLE AA'S LAST?!?
Sorry man but are u kidding me here? The only true way of finding out how long is by trying it yourself. I dont have your truck to run a true test on it. Here's your anwser, they will last untill the go out.
Alkaline AA= 1.5v x 4 = 6v
Nimh AA = 1.2v x 4 = 4.8v
Rx pack = 1.2v x 5 = 6.0v
For the price of a 20 pack of alkaline AAs, spend a little more and buy a rechargeable pack and you'll be ahead very quickly. A battery pack is around $15 (about how much mine cost 4 years ago and I'm still using it). I'm not about to calculate how much I've saved.
How long do they last? Maybe 5 tanks if I recall. Brand new they don't have the punch of a pack and don't last as long.
The only reason I buy AA batteries is for my children's toys. Just bought a 30 pack (maybe more?) for $12 at Home Depot.

Check this out eBay! 25$ then you buy the switch another 5$
30$ isn't to bad if you never have to change the battery's again. You will also get 6v every time you go drive if you remember to charge it.
