General Rules for battery replacement and PSU card replacement/modification are:
- 11/2008 to present - The controller was originally shipped with the NIMH battery and PSU card suitable for charging the NiMH battery. These PSU cards are suitable for charging both NiMH and NiCad batteries.
- 04/2004 to 10/2008 x96 BAS/V53 PSU cards - The PSU card have to be replaced to fully charge NiMH batteries.
- 1999 to 03/2004 x96 BAS/V53 PSU cards - The PSU card have to be replaced to fully charge NiMH batteries.
- Pre 1999 BAS PSU cards - 2 resistors are required, the TPA explains how. The resistors are shipped with the NiMh battery. Note: If upgrading to Sigma then the Upgrade kit S-x96-UPKIT should be used which includes a new PSU card.
