G90 TBP12 Transmitter AA battery size issue

Recommended Posts

I have had a G90 Relay system for about 3 years now. I recently tried to change the batteries and noticed they were not connecting properly and actually rattling around in the transmitter! The old dead batteries were not and still fit and connected well. Both Energizer brand. The old batteries are actually a millimeter or 2 longer than the new ones I had bought. Same with new Duracell's I bought. Is anyone else having this issue and is there a fix? Seems like they are making AA batteries shorter now which for spring loaded devices it's no big deal but for this transmitter its the difference between it working and not working.

Just noticed a difference in the batteries. The ones that fit well are made in the USA. The ones that are too short are Made in China. There should still be a fix for this. Anyone?

Yea thats ridiculous but it does work sort of. I'm just looking at the packages of batteries now making sure they say made in the USA. They fit!!

Here is a handy link to how big AA batteries are supposed to be.

There are definitely batteries out on the market that are too short, too tall or too fat (when fully charged), and are out of spec far enough that they may not fit in the TBP12.
