Even the hardest working, longest lasting squirrel resistant feeders need a tune up every once in a while. The Powerstick is a replacement part for the Yankee Flipper®. If the original Powerstick in the feeder stops working or holding a charge, this part can get the feeder back into squirrel flipping shape for countless hours of squirrel protection.

  • Get the Yankee Flipper back into squirrel flipping shape for countless hours of squirrel protection
  • Covered by the Yankee Family Limited Warranty
  • For Yankee Flippers with black “on/off” knob

Note:  The current version of the Yankee Flipper, which uses a Power Stick, has a black “on/off” knob on the side of the base.  The original version of the Yankee Flipper, which was discontinued in 2003, did not have a black “on/off” knob on the base.  The original version did not use a Power Stick and may be upgraded to the current version by ordering a YF03, which consists of all parts below the tube including a Power Stick and an AC/DC Adapter.

The input jack located at the top of the Power Stick, for charging purposes, was changed in 2008.  A new AC/DC Adapter may be required if you are replacing the older version Power Stick (switch had a vertical black pin) with the current version Power Stick.

    It took only two charges.
    First charge lasted nearly one season.
    Second charge lasted one month.
    If this is the problem with the battery and not the switch
    Then the battery design is defective.
    I use battery based tools in my workplace and the last more than two charges.

      Hello Ronald,

      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. We are sorry that you are experiencing problems with your Yankee Flipper. The power sticks have a battery life of approximately 3-5 years before they need to be replaced. We find that newer power sticks that fail easily are due to animals such as raccoons getting onto the feeders at night and draining the batteries. The animals are too heavy to spin the feeder and end up damaging the components of the power stick. We would recommend bringing the base in at nighttime to eliminate this possibility so that the animals can move on to other food sources.

    We received the feeder as a gift. It has worked very well, but after about 4 years, it is time for a new battery. Let’s hope the new one lasts as long.

    Too expensive. For over $100, the original battery should last longer than 2 years. You should let people know that before they buy it that it will be worthless in a relatively short period of time.

    Great idea, great when it works, but WILL NOT buy a third battery. Second battery lasted a long time due to non use, but as it drained it would not take a new charge.

    the battery is definitely the problem, i’ve gotten 1 replaced for free under warranty and now it took 1 charge and lasted 1 season and now will no longer accept a charge, for 64.95 that is rediculous the whole thing brand new is only 149.99 , but why would i support a known flawed item.

    I have nothing to add to what has already been a clear pattern of battery problems. If nearly all of the comments in this section, to include mine, address a failed battery and very high cost for a replacement, why are you still posting the same ridiculous responses? I don’t have heavy animals in my area and have watched the feeder with a trail cam for months. You would think that loyal customers deserve more than the same worn-out and untruthful response…

    I have battery problems too. $150 for a bird feeder that lasts a couple of years is not a good deal. There’s no way I’m going to spend $64 for a ni-cad battery pack when I can buy a couple of sub-C size Ni-Cad cells and replace them myself. $9.44 for two at Amazon.

      Hi Dave,

      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. If your Flipper has a black ON/OFF knob on the side of the base, then you would need a new Powerstick, which has the batteries and motor inside.

      If you have the “older version” of the Flipper with 2 silver thumb-screws on the underside of the base and a red light on the side, it requires 2 C-cell rechargeable NiCad batteries. Your local hardware store should be able to help you find the batteries you need, if you feeder isn’t charging properly. If changing the batteries doesn’t work, then we do have an upgraded Yankee Flipper Replacement Motor Base (YF03) that is compatible with your feeder and turns your feeder into a “newer version” Yankee Flipper. The YF03 is a Complete Motor Replacement Unit for upgrading the original version of the Yankee Flipper, using your existing metal cap w/bail wire, tube, bail rod, and 4 tube screws. The YF03 consists of a new port, silo assembly, power stick, base assembly, spring, friction disk, perch ring, hub, lock washer, nut and an AC/DC Adapter (charger). The YF03 upgrade attaches easily to your existing tube via the 4 tube screws from your original feeder. We recommend this upgrade for feeders from 2003 and before.

      To place an order, please visit our website, or call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7:30 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Thurs & 7:30 am – 2 pm Fri (EST). We look forward to helping you get back to feeding the birds and flipping the squirrels!
