Recommendation: no 4 / 5 from 12 reviews

Easier than replacing batteries. It fit perfect. It does protrude a little more than the standard batter compartment. Has already saved me and my children from having to break apart a couple of designs. I see long term value. And it lasts. Longer than any (even high drain digital device) batteries anyway.

No need to buy the expensive charger! I have successfully used both a 9 volt and a 12 volt power supply to recharge the battery. My research indicated that the battery pack contains an MP26123 monolithic DC-DC stepdown switching charger, so the exact voltage is not critical. Nine and twelve volt power bricks are very easy to find, and are also inexpensive. I wouldn't recommend going below 9 or above 12 volts.
