OK, maybe the run time is pretty short. How big (physical size) is this converter?  The technical link had no dimensions on these converters. Sound operation is the biggest source of battery drain. A loco that has no sound may be able to run for several hours with a 7.4 volt li-poly before recharge. The same loco with sound is doing good to get a little over an hour run time. Besides that, most sound decoders don't come on until they receive 7 volts-Tsunami is that way. Since I don't mess with sound effects, it is all lost on me anyway.
