Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

No more disposable batteries! This rechargeable battery box has build-in Li polymer batteries to ensure low weight and powerful action. Use this in your LEGO Power Functions models and end your need for disposable batteries!

To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen who combed the Danish words "Leg Got" which means "play well". He later realized that LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together. The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children worldwide, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!

This is a great deal it is made for you people who use Lego and power functions it has long life good charge time and stops when your out of battery IT DOESN'T slow down. If your like me then in your house you more then likely have a charger for this product I did. Look at what type of charger it is and see if you have it. THIS IS GREAT a little on the expensive side but that is fine. YOU SHOULD GET THIS!

Sorry lego, I love your products 90% of the time but this honestly is not cost effective considering that after a year of on and off use it doesnt work anymore. I think this is something poorly designed and overpriced. Very non-lego. I will be emailing my info soon for a refund which I pretty much expect that I will get. Swing and a miss lego try again and redesign this. :) But hey my train is really cool! Kids love it!

Great battery

By robotsNtrains

from Sunnyvale

Comments about LEGO Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878):

We have two of these batteries for our trains, one of them we've had for over a year. They charge quickly, will run a train a very long time on a charge, and have very little self-discharge sitting on the shelf. Yes, they are pricey, but at least you only need to buy one charger for all of your batteries.

Pin Holes???

By sammy4791

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878):

Great concept. Not so great design. A slightly longer or wider housing to accommodate a few pin holes would have been a relatively small increase in size for a huge gain in implementation. The PWM dial, however, is a nice touch offering the ability to control speed remotely. Overall, quite compact and long-lasting battery box. Would be well worth the money if not for the aforementioned flaw. -S

Cheaper in the long run.....

By Kevian

from Phoenix

Comments about LEGO Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878):

This battery works very well. I have used it for my Emerald Night train and my Cargo Train sets. I've also used said trains to pull 9V rolling stock, like my holiday train. The charge lasts quite some time, and it doesn't fizzle out slowly. When it's dead, it dies almost instantly. It features a pretty quick charge, and is very user friendly. If you run your trains as often as I do, you will certainly benefit from this battery over time.

good but....

By lili

from vancouver

Comments about LEGO Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878):

over all i found that I enjoyed this product very much here are some of the pro's and cons i found with it Pro's: -don't have to worry about batteries -you can charge it so you always have a fresh charge -compact, easy to use cons: -the high price -you have to buy a charger anyways if you are ready to spend $90 dollars it is a good choice but if you are looking for a cheaper alternative go with the AAA battery box.

Expensive Battery!

By Wunztwice

from La Grande, OR

Comments about LEGO Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878):

With all of the other PF pieces you need to run practically anything, it sure seems like LEGO would have made a better multi-pack to give the customer ease and a price break. Instead you have to buy each little part, including this battery. For the $50 price tag I will have to save up more for months just to buy the Charger/Transformer to charge this 'set'...

EXPENSIVE!

By Filip

from Norrköping

Comments about LEGO Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878):

A great product but it's to expensive. It's hard to place on technic buildings but it's very compact and good. Then you need a charger too. For like ~30 $.

Great and compact

By Vkyo

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about LEGO Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878):

The compact-ness of this "set" is very useful. I constantly use the rechargeable battery, not only because it's rechargeable, but because of the push button power switch, dial power control, and, of course, its compact-ness. The charger is a great way to keep the battery always at its best by charging it before use (for example, use in BattleBots, where power is a necessity). The only drawback is that it costs $75 for the battery and the charger, but the good thing is, once you have one charger, you don't need any more.
