    Jet Lights 7.4V 5800 Battery replacement

    Search completed with not answer.

    I thing my battery on my X2 Jetlights system pooped out. I went to their sight to see about warrenty or purchase replacement and it looks like they are outta business. Also, their batter was $120 and that seems crazy expensive. Maybe I am wrong on that.

    Anyone do a successful replacement for same?

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry, but I still can't see the connector nor I can see description about it. Until then I can't say anything.

    Pictures of internals might help too. Specialy if you can tear down/open (unscrew) the battery cilinder.

    Attached is an image of the connector. I previously attached a link to the image and specs of the battery so I admit I do not know what else I could provide. I am however grateful for your assist.

    most common packs will work if that male end is the one attached to the light head, female to the battery pack. not really anything special about it, its a standard DC connector that most brands use their own slight variation of.

    This was key point. Yes it is probably standard 5.5x2.1mm, but there are also 5.5x2.5mm connectors out there (I have one such battery pack).
    Very likely any quality 8.4V (7.4V nominal) battery you choose would work fine. Just go to the threads I've linked in post #2 and see what battery pack suits you. I can vouwch only for ones I've tried out - ie. KD one. Not saying others are not good.

    PS. If you open your pack and inspect internals (and make pictures if you want our help), there might be DIY solution too.

    Update:
    Bought a Magicshine 7.4 / 7800 battery from Amazon. Mates up perfectly. Did a bench test by raking leaving in the back yard for an hour with light blazing on high and a breeze helping cool the lamp. PERFECT! One hour in and the battery only needed a few minutes to get back to 100%. It's a little heavy and coulda bought smaller but I could also drink less beer.

    Yeah, and they are still in business. I know prices drop rapidly for tech and energy type stuff but their price for their battery (Jet) was just too much.
