impossible to connect to sku.184859 and sku.184857

  • OTLabs Tuesday, April 9, 2013 8:58 PM Reply
    It is impossible to connect this charger to "RUSTU Universal Rechargeable 6000mAh 4 x 26650 2-in-Series 2-in-Parallel Battery Pack for Headlamp" (sku.184859) and "RUSTU Universal Rechargeable 4500mAh 6 x 18650 2-in-Series 3-in-Parallel Battery Pack for Headlamp" (sku.184857): the connector is too loose and the black plastic housing too tight to make a good contact.

    Please, advice which batteries could be charged by this charger.

    Those RUSTU batteries have a hooded connector/jack which is probably interfering with this charger's plug. This charger is probably designed for batteries like sku.155514, which don't have hooded connectors. Have you tried shaving down the plastic body of this connector so it fits into your RUSTU battery's jack?

    What's up with the scrubbed LED driver IC markings?
    What are they trying to hide?

    Thank you for pointing out sku.15514! Also thank you for bringing to my attention the existence of two types of connectors - hooded and no-hooded. I will shave plastic body of connector as last resort. It is very pity that there is no "hooded" charger edition, there is only one - this one and it is not connecting well (a better product description could help a lot also).

    The inner contact in this charger's connector is also too loose for SKU: 197994 battery pack. I used aluminium foil to fill the gap but it's not very good decision, just workaround for temporary using.

    The "hood" at the battery side is not the reason of no-connection. Yes, hood makes fit too tight but still allows to put connectors one in one. However, the diameter of central pin at the battery side and inner diameter of central barrel from charger side are too different.

    This claims to use a 5.5x2.1mm plug. sku.66684 should be compatible.
