Further info

This transponder is a special type intended for use in Blokart, BMX, cycling and runner racing. It does not require charging. The power comes from an internal long life battery that can last 5 years or more. When the transponder battery wears out the transponder obviously stops working. We can expertly fit a very fresh battery which will ensure the transponder will work for the maximum time before requiring the battery to be replaced again. The transponder is resealed to AMB Mylaps specifications ensuring it is fully weather proof. We offer a money back guarantee on these repairs. The AMB Active timing system has been out of production for many years now but still popular.
