Thank you. You know if there are any that can actually tell you when the batteries are charged? I guess Lithium batteries can't use regular battery chargers... Don't know anything about them.Check out deal extreme,they have many different chargers.
Me too. But they are 3.7 (4.2) volt batteries. Putting that type of voltage on a lower rated battery causes them to go boom.Mine has red and green lights on it ,the green light is full charge. I use 18650 batteries for several of my flashlights.
I posted the one link in the 'cheap' flashlight thread but here you go.I wouldn't mind a link to a nice flashlight that uses those batteries too LOL. I"m on a shopping spree tonight.
Chargers;Okay, I'm going to purchase this one:
Suggestions on the batteries and the charger?
Those some expensive batteriesI posted the one link in the 'cheap' flashlight thread but here you go.
I got the Solarforce (L2). Not a true flashlight per se (sold as a host) because you need to order the lamp (drop in) too. That way you get to choose what intensity led you get.
I got two of them and the XM-L lamps;
The batteries I chose are the Panasonic 3100 mAh with added circuit protection sold by other brand names like Callie Kustom, Redilast
I would be using the 3.6v 18650 batteries. Would that still work, or is this charger too high for them? I like this one better than the other one I looked at.
Ever hear the phrase you get what you pay for?Those some expensive batteries
Wonder if it would be easier to just buy a charge that had overcharge protection? Dunno much about it. Still lookin' around. Thank you for u're input m8.
3.7 volt batteries peak out at 4.2 volts. But sold as 3.7 as an average. They can be drained down to at least 3.2 (I think lower but not positive where they eventually cut out.)Yeah, my only concern was the charger you listed says:
- Output 2: 4.2V/4x500mA, 500mA (+/-10%)
And didn't know if putting 3.2V in there would ruin them or not. Yeah, 3.2v not 3.6. Had to double check the batteries.
Great anyway! I will be buying the 3.6v that I listed then. Those should work with the chargers you listed then. Thank you very much.3.7 volt batteries peak out at 4.2 volts. But sold as 3.7 as an average. They can be drained down to at least 3.2 (I think lower but not positive where they eventually cut out.)
I don't own any 3.2 volt batteries but I'm positive they won't work in either of the chargers I linked to. It should say on the battery what the maximum voltage it can take.
Charging above the maximum voltage is a great way to start a fire. More Lithium ion batteries explode while in the charger then any other way. That's why the charger is more important then the battery.
