    Magicshine battery w/ gloworm x1?

    Can I use my magicshine battery with my gloworm x1? The battery is one of the geomangear warranty replacements, says 4.5 Ah 7.2V 32Wh.

    Thanks

    The gloworm battery looks to be of excellent quality, but I can see the attraction of saving $110. Compatibility works both ways, apart from the occasional connector issues. I know no reason why they won't work. While you might question the quality of most magicshine batteries, the geomangear warranty replacement is a good piece of kit & the only downside is slightly less capacity.

    Yep the connector fits, and it works -- just want to make sure I don't damage anything. The only drawback seems to be there is no battery power indicator. The MS lighthead indicates remaining battery life, whereas the Gloworm battery has an indicator on it and no indicator on the lighthead. But that's OK, I can live with that.

    I use a 2 cell magicshine battery with my X1. This saved weight and money.
