Just installed (rather coarsely... ) this battery pack in to my Brinkmann. Just waiting for the battery to full discharge before I give it a full charge up, to see how good it is. It is at least working.
Just went to order this and got this message....

Sorry, this item cannot be sent to United Kingdom.

Anyone got any valid links for batteries as they all seem to be dissapearing and ive got two sick Brinkmans

Strange, I thought it was lithium batteries that had been banned by RM...

I'm looking at getting the Brinkmann Tuff Max dual led swirl spotting lamp as it works off AA batteries, has anyone else tried these?

PS thanks to thye OP for this thread because if I do go down the dual xenon route I am certain this thread will become vital to me after all I have read

I'm still very concerned about people using NiMH batteries with the standard charger. Has anyone managed to source a lead-acid battery that fits?

I need to do this.

My battery is crap. Full charge. Use for 2 mins it dies down.

Get a IMAX b6 charger off ebay, you will then be able to charge it safely and any other battery type you have.

Ok, this is a safer way as you can use Alkaline cells or rechargeable.

This takes away the risk of using the supplied lead acid charger with NiMH cells. Which is a bit naughty.

It's not as pretty but its handy as you can always carry spare batteries.

The 4 cell pack was 2 pounds odd from ebay.

Hope this helps someone.

Lee.
