    Charger for GM 6.0 battery

    Will my existing chargers from the recalled batteries work on the new ones? I had no issues charging the original GM batteries (I had one if each) but now I have the new 6.0s and the charging light does not change when battery is plugged in.

    It should work. Contact Geomangear. They have replaced chargers that don't work with the new batteries due to the voltage being slightly out of spec (or something like that).

    I have a bunch of 6.0 battery's and one of them did this plug it to your light for a minute and run it on high then try to charge it. worked for me. I had this happen before with another new battery different brand and did the same thing and it worked , give it a try wont hurt

    There are inconsistencies in the male/female plug length/depth between chargers and lightheads. My newer charger works with all batteries. My old charger from the first generation MS900 works only with older (recalled) batteries.

    It's a circuit continuity issue, not voltage. Well, I mean 0 volts...

    I want to get a second charger. The only chargers I see on their website are the Magicshine US chargers. Do these work with the new 6.0 batteries?
