I found this discussion going on, but I couldn't find the voltage listed anywhere. These guys are rebuilding their batteries, 7.2 was the common voltage, but the generator makes 350v at .7 mA or 18 V at 50 mA. I'll let you check out the site. Hope this helps. One expensive battery!

Metz CT-4 flash gun overheated on the shaft the plastic casing overheated and melted the plastic on the handle grip I opened it up and noticed the wires inside were completely Melted.


Unfortunately, from your description, the flash is completely done for - while a repair may be possible, I doubt if it would be economically worthwhile. Replacement is probably the only answer.
What may be more important is to find out why this occurred - is it down to the charger, the batteries or an internal problem with the flash ? Were the batteries those supplied by Metz, or a different make ? If they were Metz ones, then maybe you should inform the manufacturers, to help others avoid this problem, and you might get a replacement flash if it is a manufacturing problem.

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.

I didn't take note of how the wires were connected to the RT1250 battery pack in my Belkin 900VA when I took them out to order replacements. Can anyone tell me the correct configuration? Thanks!


The two batteries are taped together with terminals and labels facing out. The jumper wire goes red(+)[battery1] to black(-)[battery2] on one side of each battery. This is a series connection making the total voltage 24v (12v+12v). Do not connect in parallel, the voltage will be too low and not charge. Do not connect the jumper to (+)&(-) of same battery, you could start a fire.

How old is that Flash?
In my opinion, battery is dry and flash circuit is OK.

Metz 45CT-4 power output


Have it serviced, or sell it. The culprit of this malfunction is either a faulty quench capacitor, of high capacitance and voltage, but small physical size, or a thyristor. Both are made of "unobtainium", can only be cannibalized from organ donors.

Metz 60 CT4


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.
