A unique & simple boat rechargeable package for both the DF65 & DF95 yachts
Consisting of a LiFe-Po 6.4v 700mAh battery pack & a compatible Life-PO USB battery charger.
Our courier allows LiFe-Po batteries to be sent with our yacht packages - we are not allowed to send LiFe-Po batteries outside the UK with our normal postal service.
The Battery pack fits both the DF95 (on the servo tray) & DF65 (beside the fin box). Weighing only 46 grams (one gram above the weight limit rule of 45 grams). When fully charged the average sailing time is at least 3 hours.
The unique USB charger has the flexibility be used around the world in the home & car. A red shows when charging & automatically goes out when charged.
We recommend that you use both these products together - do not charge the battery pack with any other charger or the charger with any other battery pack.
