Does anyone know where one can purchase a lithium battery for the deus controller ?My unit is 5 years old .The battery is lasting 6 or 7 hours on a full charge .I heard it is easy to change it .

Call the XP distributor in the USA or EU they will be more than happy to sell you one or you could check the volts/amps/mh and instal a battery with larger capacity. I would go with the second option :)

I like the idea of installing a larger capacity battery .Where would I be able to find one ?

Don't be surprised when you open your 'remote' controller to see corrosion on the board!

That happened to me very recently. I had sent it to the XP dealer to get the battery replaced because it wasn't showing a FULL charge 'icon' despite it working well and never failed in the field.(mine was up to 8 years old and was one of the originals.
You can see the photos that show a very good condition control unit and no obvious signs of excessive aging or corrosion (just congealed dirt per normal wear & tear)

I was shocked to say the least and advised the dealer "it had never got wet!" They advised it was 'battery corrosion' that must have leaked onto the PCB.

CAVEAT EMPTOR (Buyer Beware)

I would strongly advise if you have a remote control pod that is 4 to 5 years old, get that battery out and replace it as soon as possible or otherwise you may be left without the use of the remote! I was.

In the last 10 years I have owned 3 XP Deus.

The only battery replacement I have needed was in the WS4 headset and Regton did that while I had a cup of coffee.

Monsieur Deus is a magic bit of kit and 80% of our association "WHRADA" use one.

Due to the high value of the investment,I prefer to pay a little over the cost of the battery for the professionals to fit one for me.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

JBM,

Good to hear from you.

Can you say why you bought three over the years? Did you buy different 'builds / components / coils? The shafts are the same correct? But they have introduced a New shaft system.
