Can I use rechargeable batteries with the 18R2?

We do not recommend using rechargeable batteries in the 18R, 18R2, or any of our modules.

The reason we do not recommend using rechargeable batteries is due to their varying voltage and current ranges. The difference in voltage range may indicate a false reading on the battery level; for example, a rechargeable battery may die even if showing a P5 battery level on the remote or module.

COBRA also offers a LiPo rechargeable upgrade kit for the 18R2 controller.
