    Default Questions from new owner of HF-R

    Hello folks,
    Iím the new owner of an HF-R. I guess i really wanted to know what it was like so I got one after learning about it on the everyday commentary blog.

    Thanks to the candlepower community for help!

    Questions for you guys.

    1) I read the manual and Iím playing with my light. My light has 5 steps where the weakest step is low light and the 5th step is the cannon power mode. This is not how itís described in the manual. Can I assume this was someoneís custom mod and maybe someone changed some resistors? Guy@MBI didnít custom configure these lights, right?

    2) my package came with 2 MBI 10250 nukes. Where can I buy more now?

    3) I searched online and found the only charger is from cottonpickers. How do I reach cottonpickers?
    Or is there an alternative way to charge this now? I just wanted to ask from your experience instead of guessing and guessing wrong.




    Thank you!

    What a classic!

    Guy made 5 mode switches.

    Hopefully someone here can help you charge your batteries. CottonPickers stopped selling the chargers quite a while back, from what I remember. Not sure for a current source for the 10250's, sorry about that.

    The 47s magnetic charger should work the same. Not sure if there's any left on darksucks.com

    If not, I may have a spare cp charger...

    Thanks for letting me know about the 5 mode switches!

    I did find an ER10250 from China. Is that the same thing? Will those work?

    That charger is putting out 3/4 of an amp; way too much for the little guy. The Cottonpickers charger is/was 100mA. The charger Guy made is/was 85mA for the 10250 and 250mA for the 10440.

    Glad you're paying attention.

    By the way Dualsubs, you need to check the maximum discharge current that your new cells can handle. The originals were rated at 0.8A regularly, with bursts of 2.4A (cribbed from a CPF review).
    I don't think the ones you are looking at are anywhere near that.

    The MBI Nuke cell is an 80 mAh 10250 HD cell, Like Peter said, it is rated at 10C

    Charging the MBI Nuke above >100 Mah rate will progress premature cell failure.

    Hi! Thanks for pointing that out. I was in the wrong because of my enthusiasm and I modded my post.


    Grateful to everyone and thanks for sharing the right way to go about this!
