    Question Sigma batteries

    My experience with Sigma lead seal batteries is that they are "junk". I have an Evo Evo X combo that I am converting to NiCd. If this work well my bike shop has a Mirage with the same problem that they have had sitting around for 3 years. I told the manager if this works out with my current lights I will be back to buy the Mirage at wholesale. He smiled. Anyone else had the same experience with Sigma batteries and/ or converting to NiCd?

    I looked at Sigmas' web site. They make a wide variety of batteries, in India. maybe you were sent the wrong kind of battery. If you still have the sales slip for the equipment they came with you might be able to get the proper replacement. Given that, when I have the $$$ I'll be going to NiCads or Lithium for the weight savings.

    Contact Sigma directly. I had a problem with a Ni-Pak battery and they sent me a new one with no problems. They have excellent customer service.

    In New England we have nine months of winter and three months of damned poor sledding.
