  1. Hello guys,

     

    I'm a happy Ikelite user from 10 years ago. Housings, ports, and strobes.

    My last change, one year ago, was moving to the Li-Ion batteries and chargers. Very happy, less weight, less space and more performance.

     

    Well... my problem is that, suddenly, I can't charge two of my three batteries. Just the charger stay flashing all the time. Never stop and don't charge. I've two Li-Ion chargers and therr batteries and tryed a lot of combinations...

     

    I found this:

     

    The center contact of the receptacle into which you plug the charger has a split pin that can get squeezed together preventing good electrical continuity. Take something like a small screwdriver and spread the center pin slightly so it provides a snug fit with the plug. The socket is diode protected to only allow electricity "in" so you do not need to worry about a short circuit if you touch the side of the socket.

    But don't solve my problem.

     

    I found an article about Li-Ion explanng that this batteries can protect the circuit and "sleep" until a smart charger wake up again the battery.

    I googled a lot and can't find the solution. I know, I've the Ikelite support but I'm almost sure is not a manufacturer problem, something strange with the charging process.

     

    any advice??

     

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Anybody know what kind of strobe connections the Aquatica housing will have for the E-M1?

     

    Hi, I own an Aquatica housing and used fiber optic cords for the first dives. Works perfect. After some weeks I have an Ikelite connector and works better than expected. You don't have speed sync limits if you know how play with the black band in the top of the frame ( other Oly cameras had this band in the bottom). You can order also Nikonos connectors as you preffer.

    Some photos with the Aquatica housing and a couple of Ikelite DS161 with FO adapters.
