Hi all, first post here. I'll dive straight in with a technical question
I have a Hope Vision dual LED for my off road mountain biking. Its fine, but the 7.4V 2.5ah battery life is a little bit on the low side. I therefore have bought 2 18650 batteries with a combined 7.4V and 4.8ah.
The Hope light already uses 18650 batteries. Here is the battery pack:
This pack is charged with this:
The batteries I have bought are:
And this is the charger I have bought for them:
What I'd like to know is, are these batteries charged on a trickle-charge where the current slowly drops as the battery voltage rises, or is there some kind of electronic control going on? Its a consideration as I may (for convenience) choose to put a spare connector on the 2 new batteries which matches both the Hope charger and the Hope light. Otherwise I'll have to go out and buy several new connectors and make a couple of leads up.
