MagicShine Replacement Battery ?
 
I have a 3 year old (or so) MagicShine, and seem to have misplaced the battery pack. Is there something I can buy as a replacement that's compatible with the light and charger ?
Thanks

Google "magicshine battery" - there are a lot. MagicShine is still in business and their packs are compatible. DX sells them, and probably others as well. There are MANY for sale on ebay including from US sellers, and including greatly improved versions.

If, as your handle suggests, you're not averse to doing a little DIY, ANY 7.2 volt LiIon pack with protection circuitry built in can have the proper connector pigtail soldered on. You can hack one out of the easily-available MS extension and Y connectors.

Thanks. I am a DIYer, but electronics are my weak spot. :(

I just bought one myself the other day:

Also bought this slightly more expensive, higher capacity model:

check http://www.mtbrevolution.com/index.p...tegory&path=64 I don't know how that action-led battery pack could be 5600 mah when every other 4battery solution that is identical to it is 4400...In any case, the mtbrev battery looks to be a better deal on the surface.

Here's your chance to learn a new skill (seriously, NEVER pass up a learning opportunity). This is as simple as it gets and the tools needed are < $10.
