Sometimes, it’s the simple things that make this hobby fun. I recently found a unique 3D printed accessory from the folks at Pushrod 3D that will make it easier for you to keep your batteries sorted out and know when you’re putting a fresh pack into your radio-controlled machine.
Available in a set of eight, their Battery Charge Indicator Caps fit on the plug-end of your battery, allowing you to quickly see which pack has been used and which still has juice. Green caps are for fully-charged packs, and red caps are for batteries that have been depleted.
The caps have been designed for a universal fit of many connector types, including Deans plugs.
Priced at $8.99 for a pack of eight (four green/four red) these battery caps are available online through their Facebook page. Visit facebook.com/pushrod3d for additional details on these and other 3D printed accessories.
