I've searched. I have King X2, I'd like to replace stock battery pack that came with it and the crappy wall charger that could burn my house down.

When I search all I can find is complicated Lipo upgrades. I just want a replacement plug and play.

What's best replacement battery + best charger combo that won't burn my house down?

I'm sure thread link is out there... please help. Thanks

The team orion LiFE battery is probably the next best thing to use short of LiPO. The voltage is 6.6v so you're at the same voltage as the stock NiMH pack but with a longer duration on voltage levels. I usually charge my pack every 4 to 5 tanks or every week or so depending on usage. You will still need a specific charger for it but they can be had for around $50/$60 or so.

By far the best battery for the 5ive (or x2) is the killer rc 7.4 7200 lipo
Really wakes up the stock servos

And it just plugs in.... No voltage regulator needed......My 5ive stock servos did fine with it.....not sure which stock servos the. X2 comes with though.....
