I was told by a dealer if it has the rectangular 9V looking battery it is a 5V board, and if it has the cordless phone "shrink wrapped" style battery it is a 3V board. Are there 5V boards with this 2.4V battery? (The images are from Traintekllc.com)
The point of the exercise is to determine the type without taking the locomotive or tender apart.
I understand that John, have some Proto2 without a charging port, some round port , others with the 3.2 port. Installed BCR's rather than ever open them up again.
I was asking Marty about this reply. It seemed to infer that other than a 8.4V battery did not mean 3V board. "Marty Fitzhenry posted: By saying a board is a 5V board, that relates to the components in the board and has nothing to do with the battery."
