Very good – 11.1V 2200mAh Rechargeable Li-Po Battery for Futaba Transmitter Reviews

posted by Dreamglider on 05/04/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
it fits inside the yaesu ft-817 and last for about 2-3 hours on cw/ssb and a little less on full duty cycle modes.
11.1v is way better than 13.8v since you are less likely to kill the finals at lower voltage and still the power output is 5w.
Cons:
it's designed for a futaba rc transmitter so i doubt it's more than 2-3C, but that's ok since it's
(Ease of use Rating i gave it 4 stars since i had to change the connector, Not a con so to speak, but it has to be done if used in the 817)
Other:
again it fits very snugly in the ft-817 it's great for portable ops i have three of these in the go pack and im very happy with it
Bottomline:
great for hams with a Yaesu FT-817 looking for a new battery, it's very capable of delivering what ever the 817 draws(About 2amps).
