Doesn't fit Ultrafire Wf-139 charger

  • MyTMouse Thursday, December 31, 2009 8:13 PM Reply
    Don't know if I just have bad luck but my 4 new batteries along with Ultrafire WF-139 charger (SKU 1251) don't fit together. I CAN get the batteries in the charger but it involves cramming them in so hard it dislodges the cap of the cells and almost damages them...seriously, I have to re-position the top of the cells after using that charger.

    Cells are too big...they are a few mm longer than they should be. I'm not impressed.

    That can be a problem with protected cells, some chargers/lights prefer them, some dont.
    The protection circuit adds a few mm to the overall length compared to non-protected.
    If you want, you can just remove the protection circuit from the bottom, its not hard to do.
    It is connected by a thin wire going up the outside of the cell.
    You need to strip the wire out too, and you'll need to tape the blue protective cover back on with tape.

    I'd almost rather mod the charger so they fit...

    When you think about it though, why should I have to mod anything? Either the charger wasn't designed very well, batteries are too long, or both

    Nop. It is the changed design of those batteries compared to older series. Check my post.

    Old ones were fitting into wf-139. New ones jumps out from it (they are both wider and longer).
