Batteries for light kits
« on: March 17, 2005, 04:52:07 am »
Does anyone know of a cheap place to buy the little batteries for the Finesse light kits?  I don't want to pay $5 a battery; that's $20 per diabolo.  Also, the batteries have "GPA 76" on them, but I couldn't find an exact match at the store.  I found ones with 76 and other letters printed on them, but not GPA 76.  What batteries do people use?  Thanks!

I don't know the cheap solution, but you should try asking your local clocksmith. The batteries are the same than in some wristwatches, and I guess a lot cheaper than ordering from the juggling vendors.

(according you are using babache lightkits?)
It's just a world spinning around your diabolo

Apinex !

1.75 euro for 5 batteries (LR44) that last very long.

I've bought 10 sets of 5 batteries six months ago and I'm very satisfied  :D

And you're Canadian ! you should have found this site on your own  :wink:

Hey thanks a lot milka!  That's way cheaper.  So, the LR44 are the ones I need for the evolution 4 light kits?

Sorry for bumping up this old topic but I just ruined the rechargable batteries in my light kit by trying to use a 4.5v charger...Can you use non rechargable batteries in the new evo 4 kits, and on that site apinex which batteries do you buy?

I did it before the splitter came out, i just used the ones i used in my original light kits. LR44's I believe, usual laser pointer etc. type doodads. Get them all round the place, not just juggling shops.

Does anyone know of a place to buy the rechargeable batteries?  They are the H40BCs, but the only place I've found online with them is in Polish and requires a minimum of a 244 zl order, which is about $100.
