I didn't have any luck with this over in the DIY forums, so I thought I'd check with you guys:
*** feel free to point me to any posts/threads I didn't find in my search.
I've got a the generic Chinese light with the Cree XML. Light head just stopped working with my battery pack (works with another one I borrowed) Charger flashes red when the pack is plugged in. I'm going to double check that its not the charger, but I'm almost certain its the battery.
I'd like to open up the battery pack and replace the bad cell(s). I'm reasonably savvy with electronics (mostly audio/video and automotive/home). I have a volt meter and soldering iron.
Firstly, what and I going to see when I open it up? Are the cells typically connected via solder? Circuit board? Leads? etc...
Secondly, what will be the best test for checking my cells? Voltage? Current? etc..
If someone could quickly just tell me the process for checking the cells that would be great!
