Mine didn't work from the box nor did it work after an hour of charging in the car. So i brought one of those adaptors to plug into the wall and for the car charger to plug into that. Left it to charge over night and BINGO!! the thing now works.


Nice write up if we do experience problems

I chucked the Pb battery but it was approx 30mmx40mmx70mm from memory. Very small for a Pb. 6v output with 2500mAh capacity. The charger is a 12v output.

That is very small, i can Ni-MH cells to fit in that space just! 3800mAh or 4200mAh, but would have to by pass the charge circuit and use a specific charger. it mite be hard to get hold of Pb batteries that size and capacity although if Briinkmann are selling the torches must still be able to get them.

I've got a contact in the US so ill ask him if he can got hold of them.

ive contacted brinkmann thinking just that , but for this flashlight they dont do replacement batteries , i highlighted the fact that there is a serious fault with the cell thats in there , but i suppose if their sales are still good then they wont do anything about it .
he mentioned a place called DW thats buying them all then laughed

There must be someone making these batteries somewhere, if that PCB inside the torch is just the charger then there wont be a problem bypassing it and using a external charger and fitting a Ni-MH battery.
