Here is my measurement http://img258.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=915015567_zerovoltage_122_405lo.JPG
There are 3 fully charged Li-Ion 18650 Accu. There is no voltage. Earlier today it was activating battery protecion after inserting them into carraige, now it doest not do anything. Where can be problem?

well, without any other info, that measurement of 0.00v indicates that the tiny fuse in the carrier base opened and disconnected the cells. meaning that something shorted out the cells and the fuse "blew". I do not know of any fuse easily available that will also fit into that space in the battery carrier. So as I wrote above, you should purchase a new battery carrier from Sunwayman.

Thank you, I ve contacted sunwayman if they can send me replacement.. I have warranty period and also my T60CS registered so I suppose they will be honest and send me replacement for free...

Have Sunwayman finally produced a "plug" for this light? I notice in a few shipping photos of the lights that any plug is conspicious by it's absence, and wondered if anyone had received a light with this protection.

I want to share with you my experiences with Sunwayman customer "care". I complaint damaged part, they promised to send me it, forwarded me to my seller where I bought light, then told me they send him new part for me, but I still have nothing and they ignore my emails now. Sorry but I can not recommend their products any more.

Hmmm, the long-term reliability of the light is an issue I mentioned in the review, as any accidental tripping of the carrier fuse would require a replacement carrier (which may be hard to get as time goes by). This is the second report I've seen on the unavailability of a replacement carrier recently, which is worrisome - it suggests my theoretical concern (at the time of review) is now becoming a practical one.

I recommend you follow up with the manufacturer again, letting them know what the dealer said. I'm not surprised that dealers don't have inventory of replacement carriers. Hopefully there is a miscommunication issue somewhere, and you can indeed obtain a replacement. Good luck, and let us know if you have any progress in resolving this issue.

EDIT: While I don't recommend people try to disable the fuse, that is an option if you are stuck with a blown fuse and no replacement carrier available. jh333233 posted just such a mod in this post. Note that if you do this, you MUST stick with using protected 18650 cells in the carrier (as that would at least provide some catastrophic short protection). You are much better sticking with a fuse-enable carrier, if at all possible, as you really want to avoid potentially shorting 18650 cells.

Hello people,

I have a strange problem with my T60CS charging base. Normaly, as I remember, when I put the flashlight in the charger, the green led was made red. But now the led just flashes red green red green like 5 6 seconds then remains green and no charging is made on my flashlight.

Another strange problem is that when the flashlight is connected to the charger I can light with it and the green led turns red. When I took it off, my flashlight stops working.

Do I need to change my charging base?
