Does anyone own one of these Energizer camping lights. Pic attached.
I have one but I have lost the Ac adapter.
Can someone send a photo of theirs so I can see the voltage and other details on the plug.
Welkom op die forum.
Hoop jy word gehelp.
Op die een foto wys watter battery die eenheid gebruik. Die ander is lyk my n plek wat verskillende chargers ensovoorts verkoop. As jy die battery specs vir hulle deurgee behoort hulle jou te kan help met die regte charger. Andersins sommer Energizer direk skakel...hulle behoort te kan help.
The white Ellies adjustable adaptors with a 7.5V setting should also work. The lantern should have it's own regulator ti bring the volts down to 6.8V to charge the 6V battery.
These chargers are very handy. I use mine to charge a fly swatter 4V battery but make sure it is not on charge for longer than 3 hours at a time. Available at Builders.
Am I mistaken or can I see 12V indicated on your lamp? The power unit Danie refers to will certainly do the trick, whatever the required voltage is. This is a very handy item to have as it covers so many uses.
Yes it says 12v
But the battery inside is
Mike, The lamp is obviously made to be charged with 12DC, so I think you can safely do that whatever the voltage of the battery. I have a similiar looking one but not an Energiser, that also has a 6V battery but which you charge with 12 Volt.
Can you send me a pic of your adapter showing volts and Ah on the adapter please.
Sorry Mike, It is not at our home where we are at present. But you don't actually need this. Just buy an Ellies adaptor, set it for 12 Volt and check whether the polarity is correct. That is also indicated on your lamp. Normally the pin- the inside contact- is + but just make sure.
Mike, I have found my lamp but unfortunately I had the facts wrong. It has a 4V lead acid battery and is charged by a 6V power unit, so this does not help you. As for the rest of what I have said, I believe that is true- you should charge the lamp using 12V as indicated on your lamp.
Thanks for checking
Mike these lamps normally also come with a sigar lighter charger (12V) so the lamp would internally supply the correct voltage to the battery. You can thus safely use the Ellies adjustable adaptor I mentioned earlier. You can also use a old 12V router or other adaptor just check polarity on a similar lamp even in a shop as Fred suggested.
Voltage can be set at 3-4.5-6-7.5-9-12V on the slider below the 3 pins.
The 500mA unit will work fine.
