Default wl TORCH battery question

Ok this may not be the place for this nor that anyone may know but my battery died in my wl torch. I can put d batteries in it but barely glows. Would there be any other batteries equivalent to a d in size that would work? Like high powered rechargeables? Please Lmk. Thanks guys

It takes a custom NiMh battery pack. You need to be feeding 14.4 volts to the light for it to be at full brightness.

You can buy spare batteries for the Torch from Wicked's website.

Wicked Gear

Be careful around that Torch thing, though. I've heard bad things about the quality of construction and overheating issues.

I know you can buy extra batteries but it took 2 months to get it before. And is there any batteries like a d size that could put out that kind of power?

No, the only suitable replacement is the battery pack they are offering.

It's a pack designed to specifically power the Torch flashlight and nothing else - hence, batteries made for anything else won't work with the Torch. Sorry, but there isn't another way.

Glad to see WL's rep dropping like bird waste.

Don't forget it could be an internal issue... it could be the bulb OR the driver thats controlling the current that flows into the bulb. Just to float that idea out there.

I don't think there is a driver in the Torch, there's only a big ballast resistor.

Say, how did you figure out it was the battery that died? Have you tried measuring with voltmeter?

There's not even a ballast resistor. It's the full battery voltage into a 12V lamp. That is the only possible way to get 4000lm out of the standard 100W halogen lamp they use.

Well the charging indicator flashes telling me a bad battery. It just won't charge now. No light is faulty charger. Green is charged. Red is charging
