Mister Babache Light kit batteries
« on: March 17, 2010, 08:39:02 PM »
Does anyone know the exact specifications of the Mister Babache light kit rechargeable batteries?

I find that they lose power after a couple of hours - I would like to see if I can buy some 'regular' batteries of the same spec and replace them in the kits.

Thanks

'LR 44' (non-rechargable) is what i use. I usually get them in bulk from 'Home of Poi' and then store them in the fridge- I much prefer them to the rechargables that come with the kits

G13, AG13, L1154, V13GA, RW82, A76 = LR44

@onewheeldave, I assume you have moved to the southern hemisphere because if you are still UK based you can get them cheaper without paying for the HOP branding/worrying about the delivery miles :P

It seems to me that you could purchase these batteries at a Radio Shack (or whatever electronics store you have in your country).  Just bring them in and get a close match.  They need to be 1.5 volts each.  I'm not sure about the other specifications.  Just make sure that they fit into the slots and there is a good connection.

As for me, I don't mind recharging my batteries, even though they start dimming after 15 - 20 minutes.

Don' t they need to have the correct Amps?

They are other names/model numbers that LR44's are know by.

ahh, thanks.

Are these model numbers that any electronic store would know or just a Home of Poi code?

I'm still in the UK :)

I'm not a big fan of ordering from overseas, however, some things you can't get in the UK but HOP have them, so, when ordering those I'll also get a bulk order of LR44 as well.

Additionally, last time I looked I found nowhere in the UK which had LR44's as cheap as HOP prices.

HOP also has very good customer service- the only negative is the odd occasion when UK customs make one of their apparently random import charges.

Makes sense if adding to an overseas order.

Firetoys 25p/b in 10 packs, quick ebay check 12.25p/b 20 packs inc PnP
