I can't seem to find anything about this elsewhere, so I'm going to ask here directly. Are there any disadvantage of using the older, 9v battery pack (4760c01) that took one 9v cell to run power functions receivers and motors instead of the current, 6x AAA battery pack (87513)? I know it will require a converter cable, but from my view it looks as though a 9v battery pack would be better as it is smaller (in height) and available in more colours than just DBG, so easier to hide in 4-wide MOCs and such. Will this have lower power or current output to the motors, or discharge faster? Is it suitable for use in train MOCs, considering mine won't need to run very far or for very long? I was intending on using it with a rechargeable 9v cell or two, how often would I need to swap one out and recharge it? I'm trying to decide whether or not buying one, and a converter cable, is a good idea. (Or I could try bashing together a PF cable and 9v battery clip perhaps, like this.) Thanks in advance for any help!
Hi peeps So today I was building the 42030 and noticed the battery box has several differences to the ones I owned before. 1. First of all the switch is much better to operate, it sticks in the off poistion much better and is easier to control. 2. LED is much brighter and green-ish compared to old ones: 3. The mold has been changed so that the symbol for DO NOT THROW IN TRASH is now on the other side of the battrey box. They also imprinted serial number which I think stands for 40th week of 2015, making this battery box very young 5. The arrows and the square next to the toggle switch are now textured and not smooth. I also noticed the motors having the imprinted date in the hard dark like in the third picture. The IR recerivers had same LED's as before. Here's what I DONT GET. If there is suppose to be a new PF2.0 next year, why bother improving the current, soon-to-be-outdated system? I have a feeling we have not seen the last of PF 1.0. Your opinions/experiences?
