    Thanks for the links, but what I need is a battery charger. There are 6 batteries shrink wrapped.
    I's still waiting for DX to respond in the meantime

    DX SKU 199471 does not come with cells or a charger, according to the description. Did you order battery packs or just 18650 cells? What was the DX SKU for them?

    Yes, SKU 206863 matches the OP's description better than SKU 199471, which doesn't come with battery packs.

    Something's not adding up here. The D99 is sold two ways; with and without batteries. If you ordered the sets with batteries you should have two 4-cell battery packs and two chargers. If you didn't get the chargers I suggest you send them an e-mail to sort out the problem. Rather than wait for their charger, order one from ActionLED ( or somewhere else local that won't make you wait a month to get it. ) Order it through ActionLED and you will pay about $15 once they include the shipping. At least you will have it in a couple days. Worth paying the extra money IMO.

    ( *edit...check your order slip again. Perhaps the chargers are back-ordered. If so sometimes they will send a partial order and send the other stuff when it comes in stock. )

    I'm not seeing a charger mentioned or pictured with the "with battery" version, DX SKU 206863.

    Well I'll be Ding-donged. Dang if you ain't right about that. After looking at every D99 model D/X sells, NONE were listed with battery that included a charger.
    This is all new to me. I've never seen a light set sold with battery that didn't include a F'n charger.

    Personally I must own about five of these cheap chargers but if I was a newbee and had just ordered my first light set-up I would be super p-issed.

    (* edit: E-mail sent off to D/X rep )

    Thanks forthe assists. The units I received were FREE as I am reviewing them for DX. The 1st time they sent 2 sets of lights, no batteries. I contacted them, they sent 2 battery packs (6 batteries shrink wrapped), but no chargers. I sent a note again and hopefully they will send the chargers. One battery was charged, the other dead. 01 CAt Man Do sent me a link and I might just buy the damn chargers, after all the lights & batteries were FREE

    Hi Ed,

    I sent you an email in regards to this, for the other D99 lights without chargers, I am notifying the product team to add this info to the description of the D99s. Thanks for pointing this out guys.

    Oh for crying out loud! This of course changes everything. You might have made mention of this in the OP.
    Since this was a "special packaged review order" that might mean that the ads that don't mention a charger "might actually include" one. However at this point there is no real way to know unless the D/X rep tells me differently.

    Perhaps you didn't get chargers because the D/X rep might have assumed you already had chargers. Contact the person that offered you the free review stuff and you will get some answers.

    ( my link to the charger is in post #8 ) ( edit: Sorry, the D/X rep posted as I was writing this. Still not sure if chargers are going to be included with battery sets yet. )
