Ikelite battery capacity NiMH for DS 125/160/161

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Need to replace my DS 125 batteries. Considering the NiMH battery packs. Does anybody know how much capacity (mAh) the cells have?

 

Thanks.

If your looking at getting new battery packs I suggest the Ikelite Li-Ion packs as they are lighter, quicker to recycle, and hold more charge. The are 3900mAh. The only downside are they take longer to recharge when flat and you have to buy a new recharger as the older Ikelite chargers dont recharge the Li-Ion.

I'd second Aussiebyron's comment/suggestion. I very recently replaced the aged battery packs on my two DS-160s with Li-Ion and really like the benefits - much lighter in the water (topside as well, of course!), very quick recycling and only have to recharge them every couple/few dives (I tend to average 50-100 shots a dive)! In short, they were a very worthwhile replacement for my well-used NiMH battery packs.
