Thread: ZL H604c battery top shape for good contact?

  1. #1

    Question ZL H604c battery top shape for good contact?

    Hi all,
    I want to know if I would have any problems maintaining good contact between the battery and the headlamp if I use this cell? As you can see the positive contact of the battery is a bit recessed and I've ordered ZL H604c, so I don't know what the pins inside the battery tube look like. Any help would be much appreciated.

    The contacts are 5 PoGo pins, it should work.

    Unlike the handhelds, Zebralight headlamps can still use almost any battery, protected, unprotected, button or flattop.

    I donít see how the pins would work with a button top battery.

    I could be wrong. The PoGo pins are very close together. Maybe someone can chime in.

    The way I see the pins on mine, it seems they wouldnít touch the button top in the center.

    True, but they touch around the perimeter. Not ideal but totally adequate for all but highest modes, and doable for highest modes in a pinch. Just less efficient.
