OK thread stickied, thanks to Dom, did exactly as described and purchased the exact same battery pack (seller on play.com has it for 9.99) and it works brilliantly.

The brinkmann is now much lighter too.

Glad it helped, Neil - my Brinky is still going strong thanks to the battery transplant. Just don't leave on to charge for too long and it's as sweet as you like and so much lighter.

Have just ordered one of these lamps, have they improved the standard battery at all?

Sounds quite straightforward to replace though, thanks

Just a quick bit of info. If you need replacement batteries then Multicell (www.multicell.co.uk) are pretty good. I needed a new battery for my Cateye cycle lights, which use a lead-acid battery, took it to them and they had one on the shelf for 6! Same spec, slightly smaller case but works the same! They do all sorts, cordless drill batteries etc so might be worth checking with them.

Brinkmanns are a good bit of kit IMHO and the batteries last a fair while, I've had one probably about 3 or so years now.

Its dead easy to replace the battery as per this thread.
