Q: Hi Richard, Can you advise me on a suitable rechargeable battery for the T8FB hand set. The dry cells I’ve used don’t last very long. I’ll need a charger too please.
The T8FB will work on a variety of different battery packs due to the adjustable battery voltage alarm. It will even run on a 3 cell LiPo!
The question is, do you have the ability to re-program the battery voltage via the app or windows software? If not then I suggest sticking to 4.8V NiMh packs which is simply four good quality rechargeable AA's.
If you can change the settings then use this pack for great run times:
And this simple charger:
