Hitec optic 6 run time.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just purchased a hitec optic radio ( first computer radio )
When i first turned it on Battery volts were 10.8 I proceeded to start to program one of my planes but the battery went dead (warning beeps )
in approx 15 mins. I replaced the battery with a fully charged one same size / part # from my laser 6. it went dead in 30 - 40 mins.
I fully charged origional battery 12-14 hrs (manual does state 15hrs) noted the time, extended antenna, and proceded to try to program my other planes but in 1 hour, 2minutes battery was dead (warning beeper) and at 9.2 or 9.3 volts.
both batteries, have the approx same run time in the optic but seem to last for many hours in my laser.
Is this normal run time for this radio ????

Not happy with this cant fly for an afternoon like that.

Thanks for your help.
