    Using an R/C car charger on NiteRider batteries?

    I'm moving to Australia so instead of getting 220V chargers I figured I could charge my batteries with an RC car charger. The charger will do NiMH, NiCAD, Lipo, and LiFE. Any thoughts?

    The lights are the NiMH Storm, and Lithium MiNewt Dual X2.

    I use an RC charger to charge my home made Li-ion packs with no problems but Niterider put more than just the batteries in the battery packs.

    On some of their lights they put all the other bits normally found inside the light in there too(that's how they keep the light heads small), things such as the driver and switch so they may have special chargers that are required for their packs.

    I dont know the storm but I know that the MiNewt X2 has almost everything in the battery pack.

    get a transformer. Costs peanuts, probably less than 30 USD.

    The charger on those lights is in the battery pack on the MiNewt Dual X2.You will need to get a transformer for that pack. The Nimh pack you can use the RC charger.
