Once a remote control helicopter has been bought and unpacked, the next headache is usually the power supply to be used for the choppers. For children, it becomes a great concern because once the batteries go flat and there are no immediate sources for new batteries, they will go delving through junk in the attic or drawers to see if they can find replacements. It is a very desperate situation when the children are busy nagging the parents to buy batteries and the convenient store feels as though it was a hundred miles away. Teens are always swapping batteries between the MP3 players and the other toys in the house. With all these scenarios, it is quite obvious that remote control toys will draw batteries much quicker than people would wish them to.
One solution that can cool down the circus of children fighting for the controller before the batteries run out is to simply get rechargeable batteries. These will cost more as initial cost but over time, much more money will be saved. Many toys that run big motors will use larger batteries, usually a size C. The rechargeable batteries that someone can use for a remote control helicopter is supposed to be charged for a specified amount of time before being used. Again, it is advisable to look at the size of batteries that are commonly used and then buy a charger and a battery pack that is compatible with them. A number of chargers that are in stock today have features for large and small size batteries.
Furthermore, always understand that the rechargeable batteries are specialized batteries that can run for a long time without needing replacement. They also allow the crafts to operate within optimal performance due to reliable batteries. When people decide to buy disposable but cheaper batteries, the remote control helicopter will not be functioning at the levels it was intended to perform. The best approach is to look at the rechargeable battery and think of how many disposable batteries would be bought with the same amount of money. This will reduce any fears that the person will be buying equipment that will not last long enough to make financial sense out of buying rechargeable pieces instead of disposable.
One of the longest lasting Rechargeable batteries is the nickel metal Halide battery (NiMH). These can last up to 5 years of constant operation. Their lifespan per charge is also high considering they can power a remote control helicopter even if someone charges the batteries only 4 times a week. A battery charger that will accommodate the smallest AAA size battery and every other size up to the largest size D and the 9-volt box batteries are on sale today. This would cost much less than a large pizza and is in that sense a worthwhile investment that will sort out the battery needs of the home. Charging can be done when the batteries are not in use or when the kids are doing other things. Camera enthusiasts can also plug in their batteries for a quick power top-up.
