Tutorial to replace the stock rechargeable battery with 6 x AA batteries. Takes about 30 minutes to complete the project.

I have owned 3 Maisto Rock Crawler 3XL with the Lithium Ion battery pack and each one had the battery fail quickly. I was able to return the first one ($60, new), but kept two due to getting them at a good price ($8 each, new). I initially searched for new Li-On battery replacements but they were difficult to locate. I found several videos that performed battery mods which gave me the idea to create my own mod. I was not interested in purchasing expensive stronger battery packs and different battery chargers. I also did not want to have to solder since I do not have a soldering gun.
At time of video upload, I have modded both of my 3XL and have been running them just fine for 3 weeks. I’ve gone through 3 sets of 6 x AA batteries with no issues. I would estimate run time of the 6 x AA batteries to be maybe 1 to 1-1/2 hours of continuous playtime (my son and I usually in 15-20 minute bursts over multiple days; I remove the batteries after playing and re-insert before).
Thanks for watching, comment if you have a question. Good luck with your mod!

Unboxing, test and review of Google’s Pixel Stand accessory, the official Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL wireless battery charger. The Pixel Stand can charge your smartphone without the need to plug in cables, while also acting as a Google Assistant dock. Here we setup the Stand, test the wireless charging speed with both Pixel 3 models, and check out some of the features that are activated when your phone is docked.
The Google Pixel Stand will be available at the same time as the Pixel 3 and XL model here in the UK, for a not-too-cheap price of £69. Is it worth it for the wireless charging feature?
Skip to 2.22 for the full battery charge test with both versions of the new Pixel handsets. You can see Google’s smartphones powering up from 0 to 100%, although this is without using any features – if you’re using the device as you charge, then it’ll take longer.
Note that this video was shot using a beta version of the Google Assistant. As such, a couple of features such as the sunrise alarm and photo frame didn’t work on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
Check out my full unboxing of these phones over on Recombu!
