What 12volt battery should I buy for my starter box. I went to walmart and they sell a energizer motorcycle battery for around $70 is this what I need?

Most hobby shop carry a 12v 7a battery that fit perfect.

I know Pinnacle Hobby carries them and I think there about $30.

This is what is in my ofna boxes and they last forever.

You could also strap in 2 inexpensive 2 cell lipo batteries and you would have more than enough power to start stubborn engines.

Careful running 4 cells in starter boxes (unless CRUSHER means in parallel) as you might smoke the motors in them... take a guess at how I know
