I don't know how anyone can respond to your question.Has anyone done a real test of TB47 vs. TB48 batteries? Pros/cons? Worth the extra cost for 48's? And what is average real world cost (retail) for each? Thanks!
Thank you for the info. I was interested to see if the extra capacity really translated to 30% more flight time. I didnt want to pay a 30% premium if it only translated to 15 or 20% more time. Of course it depends on ones needs. PS.- You where able to respond to the question. KudosI don't know how anyone can respond to your question.
The TB48 has 30% more capacity, and it costs roughly 30% more than the TB47, with a minor increase in weight. My experience with three TB48s, seems to indicate the capacity claims are accurate. The only con I can think of, are the travel and shipping restrictions on the TB48.
The pricing is what it is. I've never seen any dealer offering anything other than MSRP on either one.
Only you can determine its value to you.
Hey Dr Dave ..Just received 2 48's and an extra 47 in anticipation of my upcoming trip to the island of Antigua. Regarding the travel restrictions for the larger cap batts, what are the chances of having them confiscated based on capacity scrutinized by TSA? Both the 47 and 48 look identical. Are baggage screeners really reading the fine print?
I just can't see buying a bunch of 47's instead, merely to make them pass inspection for travel, especially since I just sprung for a rugged travel case from "Tradecraft".
I just picked up these bad boys for that very purpose--->The TB47's and TB48's are clearly marked as to their capacities exactly for this purpose.
Print off the TSA 2-sheet guidelines in case you encounter an agent who needs a quick refresher and politely point to the guidelines and then the battery labels.
All should be well.
How many Inspire batteries fit in this bag? For 8 bucks seems a no brainerI just picked up these bad boys for that very purpose--->
I use good old Zip Loc plastic bags, quart sized, one bag per Inspire battery for carry on baggage. $0.05 each.I just picked up these bad boys for that very purpose--->
