Karl, Your are correct. The battery requirements for this application go far beyond just slapping a battery in that is the right voltage or size. If it were that easy everyone would be doing it.

Noalox has a point but you should be aware of an honest fact. Most Segway dealers do not have the ability to really test the battery quality (aside from riding) to determine how much life may be left within the battery. For this reason purchasing a used battery may potentially be somewhat of a gamble.
Warm Regards,

[QUOTE=Ground Loop;212057]The DEKA batteries have an odd story. I found two i167 NiMH batteries on eBay back in 2006.
They arrived with none of the standard serial numbers or markings, just "DEKA" stickers. They were also mostly-shot, of course. I never got more than a mile out of them. The seller went mute, of course.u folks are way ahead of me do you know if it will ever be possible to run nmh batteries on my x2s?i wouldnt mind a shorter range or a second charge port or a flight legal combo of nicads or whatever
being quite disabled i would love to be able to fly to the Philippines with them instead of having to rent some there= mine are modified to suit my crazy needs
