I have a Brinkmann LED light. It has the strangest behavior. Sometimes I can't turn it off. Its not rechargable and sucks the batteries dry fast when it is acting up.

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.

Has anyone found a source of a lead-acid battery like the original?

Lead acid is sooooooooo last year. NiCad, Li-on, there's always some new tech coming along to downsize the lump inside these things The prob is finding something small enough as whilst the do Pb batteries they may be wider or fatter than the original, whereas the NiCad and LiOns tend to be smaller.

Just remember to pay attention to charging requirements and limitations for safety's sake.

As an update, mine charges up and works a dream still - although the Swirl Police did notice a rattle from the smaller battery I failed to fix into location perfectly. I just don't use a Brinkmann like my maracas.

... that requires a totally different charging system. If you are plugging a Li-ion battery into a SLA charger, you should build an Anderson shelter.

Ni-Cd batteries are rubbish for torches, as you can't leave them on charge. NiMH are a little better, but need a complicated charger to produce a float charge. SLA batteries on the other hand are very simple to charge, and the circuit is already in the torch.

So I repeat, has anyone found a SLA battery to fit?

Have a look on the likes of Dinodirect and Dealextreme... I know you need to wait a few weeks on delivery, but it's free and very cheap for the parts themselves. The choice of batteries is enormous!
I've bought and sold many a flash-light kit from them both and only ever had 1 delivery problem (which was fixed).

im just putting the feelers out

who would be interested in a lead acid battery to fit the brinkmann if the price is right.

The battery is the same size (give or take few mm) and terminal layout.
