Thanks Neil, that answers my question. I have not looked into the details of the new batteries and chargers but I do dread something about them and have a basic understanding of the differences.

Anyone know if the new air stream batteries can be charged with older (non air stream) chargers?

Yes, from posts on the FOG from dealers,

- new Airstream chargers can charge older batteries, but not at the faster rate.

- Airstream batteries can be charged on the old chargers but not at the faster rate.

You need both to see the charging advantage but lose no compatibility as I read it, except for a size difference of the charger.
