For the KX3, I bought a set of NiMH cells and the nice LaCrosse charger for my first few activations and for getting used to the radio. I have a 7aH SLA but that is too far in the opposite direction (heavy, large, still only 5W from the KX3).
It seems that in order to get the voltage needed for 10+W operation, you need a LiPo variant. What are people using successfully?
It would seem the 4S1P LiPo4 packs would provide the optimal voltage without the need for diodes, while also being safer.
The 4S LiPo batteries seem a bit lighter and cheaper.
Just curious about what works and what doesn’t.
