Question about Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
I can't charge the battery for my RHL125 flashlight because the charger broke. Need to find an alternative charger (not too expensive)that will charge the battery. The battery is ARHL and, I believe, the Draper part number 55950.

Sounds to me more like a connection issue at the charger due to the fact that it comes onn as you move it. However if you move it and it comes on for a second, then you move it again and it does the same thing, you are just making and breaking a connection making the charger start over, then it senses a bad battery and quits. If the battery is old it could well be that. Also look at the connection points on the flashlight and charger they should be nice and clean. A pencil eraser works great for cleaning them.

you dont have to spend alot of money on led flashlights. they range from 1$ to well over 100$, In my experience and back ground. I prefer to keep several less costly ones than to spend way to much money on high dollar lights. befofe led i cant count how many mag lights i purchased or how many were lost, borrowed or stolen it depends on what your looking for and what options you want. i like to have several 1 to 2$ ones. and some that have features like position switch. for 1 led .3led or all led lamps working. or lights that have a spot light on the end and cluster leds on the side for area lighting, in my personal opinion if your going to hang on to it you cant beat a 4 or 5 D size mag light. take in to consideration they have led models now and also led conv. kits available for ones that have bulbs in them. but note you cannot focus your beam as wellwith led on mag lights. any way the main problem i sure you and any one who has owned small aluminum led flshlights has delt with the flickering hiting them and unscrewing the ends twisting back and forth to get the light to come back when you need it most. easy cure aluminum sucks as an electrical conductor. dielectric grease is your best friend. anywhere you have any connections such as the threads on the alum. flashlights. Also very important general purpose elect. conn. ac or dc and absoloutly if you own a boat please remember any elect. conn. and most important when you connect different types metals copper, lead,brass alluminum,tin galvanize,stainless,gold they all will fail lead to corrosion and or lose conductivity.and lead to damaging or ruining minor or major equipt. remember if your repairing boat wiring for instance and possibly replacing damaged equipt. having correct guage wire correct fuses for what amperage a curcuit or piece of equipt. needs. If you have corrosion at the end of your wire terminals and your fuses and fuse blocks. it will fail......so if its a flshight , acar or boat motor .airplane ect battery, if it conducts electricity clean it ,use dielectric, not wheel grease dielectric grease it conducts electricity. and try this on your inexpensive aluminium led lights. dollar store led flashlights work fine or any where you see them on sale. if they come with batterys most likely dispose of them. dont skimp on batterys. all quality batterys have a shelf life of several years. on sale aa and aaa i look for duracells or equivelent in 24,36 or 48 packs. i allways have some with me and share them with people in need. and thats another reason i keep a few cheap flashlights with me . even when i riding my HD Road King a simple flashight given to someone on the side of the road can be the gift at tjhat time that they will never forget. i apoligize for rambling . but im not typing im just talking . the typing is being prefom by dear friend xxxxxxxx I think I am .more than a dear friend and if you keep your hands and mouth off of me for a little while. I would have been done much sooner. and you might no what I actually typed. HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone from Liz and Rick or as he likes call me LIck IT Ziggy
