I keep telling you, I DIDN'T spend mega bucks for either locos or r/c equipment. The stuff I bought has been working now for ALMOST 20 years! Yes, the boards are that old and the Li Po batteries are just about that old. The problems with these batteries going nuclear is because car racers and copter/aircraft modelers may have several models but normally have ONE SET OF BATTERIES and when they start running out of punch, they want to recharge IN A HURRY and that's when the batteries smoke! My old batteries get what amounts to a trickle charge. I have more than one lokie so if the road loco needs water & coal, I have another one all topped up to use. Besides, when I need a charge, I am usually tired of switching for several hours and need a charge myself.

Woodie
