Any updated options for a replacement battery for BB receivers with new electronics? I happen to have an extra so I replaced one battery but it is only a matter of time until another one bites the dust.
Thanks in advance.

I think people said the Sportdog batteries worked.

John, I saw the 4/30 pm and did call SportDog this morning. They weren't very helpful as to the general question.
If the battery I ordered works, I will give them and Gundogsupply a heads up.

Photos of new battery for Bumper Boy receiver. The old battery is blue the new one gold colored. You can see the new one is smaller and the case opening was designed for the blue battery. However there is rubber padding built into the battery and the cover for the opening holds it in place. It turns on and off fine. Now I have to do a launch test.
The new battery is the same volts but is slightly less 550 Mhz as opposed to 600.

Where did you get the new battery? A link available?

Thanks!

Ok, thanks John. Must be new as I didn't see it or I just overlooked. Gundogsupply said their winger releases were so new they didn't have the batteries. It's only a matter of time until I need another one.

The Sportdog 550 Mah battery did not work for me except at very close distances. John I looked for the blue 600 Mah battery but could not find it. Can you provide a link? Anyone else have battery suggestions?
