    Bike Planet 15w help

    Have this light I have not used in a couple years. Went to charge and the light just shows charged but won't work. I looked into replacing the cells but they want close to 60 bucks for the 5 batteries. I am hoping someone has the battery that maybe the light got crunched. Let me know. Hate to toss a almost good light and charger.

    Thanks

    what is the battery voltage and capacity?

    Can you solder, not batteries but wires to plugs or wire to wire?

    It is 7.4v 4500mh. They are Soldered end to end on both outside ones and then the outsides are tied to a center one. There are 5 in series basically. To buy the cells they are and have them solder them is 60.00. Just not worth it but still would be ok as a second light if I could find an unused battery..

    I'm assuming you tested the bulb?...tested the battery voltage?

    but if you can solder then you can cut the plugs of your batteries and pick up something similar to what you'll find on here I'm not sure of the specifics of your light but you may also then be able to get away with using the same charger, assuming you stick with batteries the same chemistry, capacity and voltage of the existing.

    You'll get even cheaper than that on fleabay but that's always a bit of a gamble as far as quality is concerned
