    I have a Boscam RX-LCD5802 Diversity 5.8ghz Monitor with built in 7.4V 2400 mAH Lipo Battery.
    A friend has the same monitor but busted his LCD screen so he gave me the whole thing.

    Can I pull his battery and run it in Parallel with mine to get double the mAH? And can I charge the setup using the stock 2000mAH 12V charger.

    Should work right?

    You can, but why?
    The stock monitor battery already way out last your flight battery, probably by a factor of 5. The extra complexity and weight would probably not be worth it

    Lol. Actually it does last through 5 Flights
    So I guess i'll just keep the other monitor for parts.

    I am learning that the Lipos are not as simple as just Paralleling AGM or Lead Acid batteries.

    Thanks for the reply.
