    Hope DC connector source?

    Hi,
    I've been biulding my own 2s2p battery packs for a while from recycled laptop batteries. One of my riding buddies has a Hope R4 light and wants a spare battery pack. I could build him one for next to nothing, only needing a connector. I can't find one. I've looked at the usual places but nothing is suitable. I can't beleive that Hope would have a proprietary connector. They must be available elsewhere.
    Any ideas?

    I imagine it is based on some standard connector, but the waterproofing of the joint seems custom. Probably your best bet is to buy a Hope branded extension cable and cut it to whatever length you need.

    My guess would be that its just the standard round style waterproof 5.5 x 2.1mm DC power cable used on most Gloworm, Gemini, and Magicshine lights.
