  • markusb68 Thursday, December 19, 2013 10:31 PM Reply
    Hello,

    I am interested in SKU: 192065.

    Is this the right battery ? does the connector match? SKU: 268480

    What charger (230VAC / EU Plug) do you recommend?

    Thanks

    Markus

    Hi
    Would you not be better just getting a light with everything included?
    Also, don't be fooled by the lumens figures, there is only so much light those small head units can put out before they overheat, and they're usually always over estimated.
    I have this one and its more than good enough for off road ~ 244702

    Probably, but this one is too expensive to order here.

    We can only get goods worth not more than 25 EUR without paying TAX and Customs here in Germany/EU.

    So I have to split the order in pieces for Light, Batt and Charger.

    Those *should* work together. But be prepared to change the connectors if they don't mate properly.
    What's up with the scrubbed LED driver IC markings?

    OK. And what charger do you recommend for SKU: 268480 (preferably with EU PLUG) ?

    With an EU plug, this one should work:

    OK.
    Thought a charger with current limiter is needed.
    So a simple constant voltage power supply is needed to charge SKU: 268480 ?
    Does it include charging electronics to prevent battery damage because of overcharging?

    You are correct, a power supply with constant current and constant voltage control is required. sku.252343 has the required CC/CV limiting. The battery itself also has a voltage cutoff to prevent overcharging.

    Hello desolder,

    you recommended sku 252343 as power supply for SKU 268480.

    It's (sku 252343 ) 8,4V. What is the max. voltage for SKU 268480 to charge it without damage?
    (Can one also use constant 9V or 12V too?)

    8.4V is the maximum voltage for sku 268480. Don't use a constant voltage 9V or 12V power supply. They may allow excessive charging current to flow.
