Anyone upgrade a DS-125 battery pack?

Recommended Posts

Ordered these Tenergy 3800 sub-C batteries from the U.S. (I'm from Manila) and they don't fit, no matter what I do.

see my post #68 above. I don't think you can use anything over 3800 batteries due to space constraints. I think these will work.

What are the dimensions?

Customer Service: Dimension: Height 43.06mm, Diameter 22.1mm
Weight: 59g (2.1 oz)

The diameter of the original batteries 22.2mm .874"

What is the diameter of your cells? Maybe they changed since the question was answered. The cells I used were only 3300 ma. post-2195-0-28749600-1446732658_thumb.jpg

 

Have the seller provide the exact measurements before you purchase it.

Yes, its an old thread but, does anybody have a current link to suitable replacement batteries for the battery pack for Ikelite strobes.

I clicked on a couple of the old links but they are dead.

Thankyou

I have rebuilt a few of these battery packs in the past, and had another one die just recently. I happened to be in a Batteries+Bulbs store and noticed that they rebuild battery packs. After a short discussion, I brought them the dead DS-161 NiMH pack and they rebuilt it for about $45. A bit more than it would have cost be for parts, but they have a proper spot welder to solder the cells. I was pleasantly surprised they did the job for a very reasonable price. The battery pack is working great.

My accupacks are not ready to be upgraded but I bookmarked these. https://www.ebay.nl/itm/281272377843 there are similar items in other shops as well. I am sure you could ask the supplier to measure properly.
