    Default Pro Control Receiver Batteries

    Is there a way to test the batteries in the TT pro control receivers?

    if they are several years old and you are having any issues, I would replace them.

    I heard you can get them from Radio Shack for a lot less. Not sure though.

    I have taken mine to a Batteries Plus and they make them for around $15 each.

    I was told by Tritronics several years ago to recharge at least the full 16 hr and less than 20hr. If they do not hold a charge with that, they need replacing. In my case, I was not fulling charging the batteries. I am unaware of a test; a full recharge is easy enough.

    Worked fine this morning. The extra long full charge seemed to do the trick. Thanks.
