The Metz 60CT-4 uses Accu 60-38 4.5Ah @6V Pb battery.
Charging system is difference from NiMH battery.

Beside the voltage is only 1.2VDC per cell on NiMH battery.
Four cells will have a total of 4.8VDC.
If you got five (5) cells: 1.2 X 5 = 6.0VDC. Do not charge these cells with Metz. Use NiMH Charger for NiMH battery.

SOURCE: How to disassemble metz battery pack

Cleaning is unlikely to cure your problem.
To change the cells follow these instructions, taking care not to short circuit any of the cells.
You need to know how to use a soldering Iron.
You need to understand basic electrical principals.


Stand the battery on the part with the charge socket at the bottom, the plastic at the top is held in place by a series of plastic latches.
Look closely to see them.
Release these latches CAREFULLY one by one with awatchmakers screwdriver, until the cover can be removed.
This will enable you to see a single, roughly central crosshead screw.
Remove this screw.
Unsolder the contacts at the top.
Separate the top and bottom parts gently, whilst feeding the now unsoldered wires into the assembly until you can see the lower soldered contacts on the cell units.
Unsolder these two contacts, and separate the top and bottom parts completely.
Withdraw the six cell units together, and hol them together with an elastic band.examine closely and note the long metal strip which is required to pass over a seperator in the housing.
Note also the transparent rings around the positive contacts on the cells, recover an re use these.
Purchase either solder tagged NiCads and solder them yourself, or get a battery supplier to replicate the complete six cell unit. (30 bucks here in France).
DO NOT try to solder cells without solder tags. Battery replacement stores are equipped with micro spot welding equipment to connect these.
In either case it is MUCH easier to reassemble the battery pack using the upper housing to keep the cells in place whilst soldering or welding.
Rebuild the unit.
Done!

Metz 76-56 battery charger keeps flashing red light


One of your cells is defective.
It maybe brand new, but we don't know how long it's been in the box.


You will need a DVM to troubleshoot the battery.

Any idea where I get a replacement charger for a Metz60CT4


EBay, if that's what you want. The metz "chargers" are just 7 volt ac transformers - they supply 7 volts to the battery pack which has the actual charging circuit in it. I haven't pulled one apart yet, but I'm guessing they're very rudimentary chargers. Depending on what you're using for a battery you might want to use a modern external smart charger. I use $20 AGM batteries from batteries plus (instead of the $80 metz batteries) and use an external charger from WallMart on them. It's quick, lets me see the current charge state, won't overcharge the battery, and works on my car and boat batteries too.

Is it ok to use new NiMH battery packs with the original charging base?


Absolutely. NiMH batteries are direct replacements for Nicads - in use and in charging.

Where can I get battery power pack(shell with recharchable batteries inside) for metz 45 cl series,good second hand,off market brand,or even geniune brand,thank you


I have a lot of old 45-40 Series Metz 45 NiCd battery packs, that I will eventually rebuild with new NiCd batteries. I got them from Photographic Trader magazine and from ebay. I've heard that NiCd cells are going out of production, in favour of NiMH cells. I've found it's easier to put NiCd or NiMH cells in the alkaline battery holder, the flash recycle time is only slightly longer. I charge them separately out of the holder, or in the holder with a connector I made. NiMH cells need a suitable charger, with peak detection, as NiMH cells don't like being overcharged.

Need new battery and I have a NiMH battery replacement. Can I use it on my phone? I have model number 25838GE6-A.


NiMH is a universal replacement battery. It will work in place of nicad and other types of rechargeable batteries, and will work with virtually any charger

Metz CL-4 recharging problem


Some info about batteries.. I've successfully used both NiCd and NiMH batteries loose in the alkaline holder, and in rebuilt old NiCd battery packs, in my 45CL-4. There doesn't seem to be any difference in performance or recycle time with either type of battery, but NiMH give more flashes, as they are higher capacity. The normal Metz charger is ok for NiCds, but isn't the best for NiMH, which need to be charged by a peak-detection charger. When NiCd and NiMH batteries are fully charged, their voltage reaches a peak, then drops slightly, The charger detects this drop and turns off. NiCd can stand some overcharge, but NiMH will be damaged if overcharged or overheated. I charge NiMH when taken out of the alkaline holder, in a special charger designed for NiMH. In the rebuilt packs, I charge NiMH directly onto the battery contacts, which is the top when it's in the flash gun. I use a piece of circuit board with two 3mm screws to reach the contacts, connected to a NiMH charger, and a rubber band to hold it on. It sounds funny, but it works well. I recently did a wedding and used only one 900mAh NiCd pack and one 2500mAh NiMH pack, for over 2000 shots. I used the Metz 45CL-4 on a Canon 40D.

Rechargeable batteries


They are a plastic wrap of 5 aaa batteries.......if you can't find the direct replacement for those batteries, you can just make up a battery pack yourself.
The main thing when doing this is to use the same TYPE of battery. For example alot of these battery packs use NiMH or NiCD batteries. The charger that came with the radios is designed to charge this type of battery. So look at the battery pack and if it says they are NiMH bateries... pick up 5 AAA NiMH batteries... connect them in series and your set.

All you really have to do is get the same type of battery that is close to the same voltage.
So if your stuck.... just make up a battery pack.
If you had a charger for Lithium Ion batteries, I would say make the battery pack out of those type insted. They are 1.5 volts insted of the lower voltage of NiMH and other rechargeables.
The slight increase in voltage will increase the output wattage of the radio.
But again, Lithium Ions use a different type charger than NiMH.... so if you want to use the same charger.... use the same type of batteries.
Take care
