For longer flghts, I use Hyperian 1S 320mAh 25C. I get these from R.C. Babbel on rcgroups.com. To get in touch, google "r.c. babbel hyperian battery". Then click on "RC BABEL'S blog". Once on his blog, he has prices for various Hyperian batteries. You can also buy a short lead for the battery which will plug into the stock Champ charger. Also you can contact him using the Private Messege feature.

Google "Hobbyzone Champ with floats". There are several sites to check out.
