I have 4 almost new Hytron 140's I'd like to sell. By almost new I mean they've probably been used for a day or two, maybe cycled 2 or 3 times tops.

$300 each, $1100 for all 4

I'd prefer a local pick up...I no longer have the original boxes and these things are HEAVY (5.5 lbs each)

Damn! I just bought 4 in December! Are you going with the newer Hytron 160's?

I didn't know there was a hytron 160...unless you meant the dionic 160, then yes I got a few of those. I actually like the 140's fine and don't mind hanging onto them if they don't sell (lots of power -- 9.7 amps!), they are just a bit wide for my taste.

a note about the dionic 160's -- tons of power and the same footprint as the hc-90 (1.5" taller), but they are pretty pricey and contain too much lithium to fly with.

I meant the dionic, sorry. Just saw them a B & H two months ago. Very light but almost $1,000 a piece, and you can't fly with 'em like you said.

B & H is usually on the high side...but yes they are expensive. You can find them for about the same price as two hc or dionic-90's. I liked them because their footprint is way smaller than two hc's on a hot-swap (which I have as well) and it's a good weight for heavier cameras (two 160's weigh almost exactly the same as three Pro1 nicads).

I've decided to put the 1980's behind me and add power, not lead to my sled. Using different combos of the hc's and 160's on my new sled I can have more than sufficient power weighing from 3.4 lbs to 8.6 lbs -- or as much as 10.2 lbs with 3 160's (but that's a bit on the ridiculous side). I'll let you know in a few months if I wish I went a different route, but I pretty sure I'll be happy with the extra ballast.

Now that I bought a few I know I'll get calls for out of town work and won't be able to bring them!
