    Default Replacement charger recommendations for Hartenberger wreck maxi

    Hi guys

    basically I need a replacement charger for my Hartenberger wreck maxi 14.4v has 12 cells which I think are some sort size of 4/3FAU FDK batteries and I think they are NMH batteries but not sure as torch is 16years old but batteries were replaced by Hartenberger several years back .

    so can anyone recommend a multi chemistry or other charger for this - Hartenberger charges over $145euro for new charger plus postage from Australia and bad exchange rate would make a Hartenberger charger over $230 Aussie dollars - to much for a charger these days..

    Thanks in advance

    Depends on money you want to invest and what you want charge in future .... start with

    https://hobbyking.com/en_us/imax-b6-...e-au-plug.html (should be GENUINE - there was a problems with circuit end protection on copy models) or similar.

    Ps : I just looking on LIpos 15Ah ( should fit MAXIbeast perfect - and they are half weight of NiMH in your Hartenberger ) ;-)

    H Lucca

    thanks for that info -
    that one looks good - is it a good recommended brand

    real replacement Hartenberger will cost me $230aus dollars by the time exchange rate and shipping etc , so I don't mind spending half that on a good multi-use charger .
    i have several dive Torches and strobes etc but most use 18650, AA,AAA - but would be useful to have a good multi charger around that can charge other things (computers , iPads , phones etc )

    is is there are charger out there that will charge my Hartenberger but also AA, AAA, 18650, phones, iPads etc (obviously need correct plugs- but think I can make them ok) etc so when I travel I only need one charger - have several small ones for those otherwise .

    Sorry don't understand your meaning about LIpos 15Ah (presume that means Lithium poly batteries) - if you are talking about a replacement battery pack .? . , don't need one at moment but maybe in near future (do you have a link) - and would that charger handle LIpos batteries. .?

    Thanks for for help Mark

    that charger I think it will cover all you needs but you need battery holders for specific size...

    ops I switch these lamps your with '' mega compact'' on some side with diving listings and CPF .

    if you are computer friendly you could look on some chargers that's logs charging process . IMO it's worth extra $$.

    Hi Lucca

    Thank for info , I have ordered one of those chargers from a Australian store as was similar price once postage was added and they also say authentic hologram not fake , so should be ok .

    you say to charge normal AA, 18650 etc etc you can get a battery holder ? Do you know what sort I need for that type of charger or does any battery holder from eBay work ?
    Thanks again

    usually people customize holders due their needs and solder contacts where needed ( all serial , all parallel ) also depends on some protection or BMS circuit and charger possibilities
