18650 Batteries in the 9XR Pro

Post by Rad » Sun May 19, 2019 11:08 am

Hi guys, I am swaping my LIPO batteries to 18650s, and I wonder if it is possible to fit them in the 9XR Pro.

Would the radio work with just 2? And the most important part, can I just plug them in the radio? And in which pins? I am very afraid of reverse polarity problems.

The radio should be fine with 2, I've been using 6 NiMh cells OK.
For the wiring, just check the red and black wires of your existing battery. I can't tell specifically as both my 'PROs are pre-production and have non-standard power connectors.
