    Geomangear Batteries worth anything to anyone?

    I have a couple of those Geomangear batteries from four or so years ago. They aren't calibrated right for the battery indicator lights, so I have no idea where I am power-wise when I use them.

    Is there anything I can do with these or are they destined for the recycle bin? Anyone reused the hard case with their own cells? Thanks.

    Can't tell you whether your batteries might be good any more, but you shouldn't expect the battery indicator LEDs to be accurate when the lamp is actually in operation. MagicShine issues such a discalimer on the instruction manual, says something about battery voltage being unstable when used, you should wait until lamp is off for five minutes before consulting the indicator. So in other words, doesn't work on the fly. Don't think any such systems really do.

    I can safely say that the batteries from my original magicshine lights, purchased from geoman, held charge well all the way until they died from pcb failure. So you should be ok, if they work, use em!
