RC Hobby Explosion has been the official battery supplier of Nikko batteries since their American distribution center went out of business in 2008. Some of the original Nikko battery packs, such as the 7.2V NiCd plug-in version, have now sold out. Not to worry, though, as we have teamed with a top NiCd battery manufacturer to provide our Nikko battery customers an RC Hobby Explosion 7.2V battery that has comparable specs, size, voltage, run-time and shape as the original Nikko 7.2V plug-in battery (Nikko #1272). In fact, this battery has a nice advantage as it comes with slightly longer AWG wire leads. This replacement combo set includes the new 7.2V battery and a charger that charges the battery in about 4 hours.


  • 7.2V RECHARGEABLE NiCd BATTERY PACK (replaces Nikko #1272)
  • INCLUDES CHARGER (charges battery in about 4 hours)
  • NOT FOR USE WITH NIKKO TWIST N TURN (smaller scale 7.2V battery)
  • Battery Dimensions: 5 1/8" x 1 7/8" x 1"

    Exceeded expectations

    Posted by Matt Taff on Apr 15th 2020

    When the type of battery I requested was out of stock due to the current health crisis, they upgraded my order to a better version for free and shipped it ASAP. It arrived extremely quickly and worked better than we could have hoped. My brother is very happy to bring life back into an RC truck he had as a kid.

    Great product!

    Rediscovered an old Radio Shack Road Phantom I saved up to purchase as a teen. Decided to clean it up to give to a neighbors son. I couldn't find a battery after calling a local hobby shop. Luckily found the RCHE website. Got it up and running! Just waiting for an antenna tube to arrive. Thanks guys!

    Nikko 7.2V Replacement Batteries

    Posted by John A Sr. on Oct 2nd 2018

    A friend gave me a couple of Nikko RC Trucks and the batteries were shot. Ordered them from RC Hobby Explosion and they were here in two days! Fit was perfect, charged them up and we are back in business!
