    Default Bumper Boy Batteries

    The link is to Batteries America. This is where I buy my replacement batteries for my bumper boy receivers.

    The cost is about $16.00 plus shipping.

    http://store.batteriesamerica.com/sa...connector.aspx

    On the first drop down menu for pack shape, pick flat side by side A style.

    On the second drop down menu for wire leads or connectors, pick Futaba J connector.

    Hope this helps some folks save a little money.

    I just upgraded to the new sound system. Its a great deal. My favorite part is the ability to transition from 3 transmitters down to one. I have not purchased the e-collar yet, but plan to. These guys have really figured out an integrated system that makes sense. Before it was TriTronics E-Collar transmitter, bumperboy transmitter, tri tronics pro control remote for winger. Now, with the new BB electronics, I can use BB receivers on all my equipment. This was revolutionary.

    Do you find that the replacement batteries from Batteries America have a life span relatively as long as BB's? I'm asking because that is a great price, I just checked BB's replacement batteries and they charge $42/receiver. How can that be justifiable? Thanks for sharing this link, Down East Labs!

    I have been using them for about a year and they are still going strong.

    Thanks for the tip. One of three of my 4-shooters wouldn't hold a charge well, so I replaced all 3 plus the transmitter. Three for the price of one. Great service from Batteries America.

    My only problem was that the Futoba connectors were glued on and I didn't know what to use, so just plugged them in.
