I was about to buy a new Brinkman this week as mine has been dead for over a year, then I remembered this thread! Got my battery today and now I have a working Brinkman!

Thanks very much for the info and making this happen.

No not just wrecking your battery and wasting your money but as already BEADING SHINY has mentioned not mentioned , mixing batteries with the wrong charger can lead to the battery exploding http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc...4mUVgndTfvs3Og

Not only that, but if they are Ni-cad cells, they don't like being charged until they are flat, so pretty useless for a torch.

That link is for lithium polymer, which is a totally different story altogether.

Lithium rechargeable cells are a very dangerous product if mistreated, they should always have protection circuits for over charge, over discharge and short circuit.

as see in that vid they vent with flame, usual lithium cells are packed with vermiculite when being transported as this extinguishes the flames should they catch fire.

Lithium rechargeables are very much like lead acid in the way that they charge using constant voltage.

Any more up-to-date links for this thread? My Brinkmann has died and doesn't hold more than 30sec light no matter how long it's been on charge.

Would like to get it fired up again!

Are the brinkmanns currently for sale the same as these or have they revised the model with the battery issues etc?

Thanks
