No i do not have a Multimeter to test the battery,
Yes i have only 1 battery 18650 @ 4200mAh what came with the laser.

After a sugestion by another member i decided to pop open a laptop charger for the battery's (yes i know the battery's are cheap enough to buy) but it was late at night and i was too tempted to do it,
after opening the charger there was no battery's that would fit the laser as it was a Multi-Adapter (iE) Differebt Voltage type.

However i do have other charger's to pop open but thought i'd save my time & just order a new battery along with a new charger so time will tell

I will thank everybody who helped me here & come back after the arrival of my new kit

Thank You Guys :)

OK so my new battery and charger from EBAY didnt arrive so i dont really want to try and re-order from there i'v had nothing but bad experience,
However i have opened a Laptop battery and gained 4 more 18650's but again the charger DOESN'T charge them so yes it looks like the charger is a defect and not working.

Please if anyone could be kind enough to send me a charger i will pay the P&P if you have spares

Thank You Very Much

Put a multimeter on the contacts of the charger to find + and - and match it to that of the battery

What about battery's from Amazon any recommendations to go with that charger as i want to spend over $25 to get free shipping

Thank You
the only ones from Amazon I will recommend are the Panasonics and be carful as to the reviews and that they are protected.
Some are not what is shown, just do a search.
They cost more but they are about the best.

Amazon.com : Panasonic NCR18650B Super Max 3.7V 3400mAh Rechargeable Li-ion Battery-Green : Electronics
They are flat heads, so be sure they will work in your laser before you buy them. Do a search for 18650s as there are other Panasonics listed.

These are not protected. Thus you will have to be careful of over-discharge.
You do not really need to be careful of over-charge, since the i4 is smart enough to automatically stop charging.

But it is still better if you can keep an eye on it. :)

For i4 there is a 2 slots are paired together. If you charge in slot 1 and 3, each slot will receive 375mAh. Same goes for slot 2 and 4. If you charge in slots from different pair, they will receive 750mAh.

Therefore for i4 there is 2 charging speeds.

For i2 I am not very sure.

Hope that helps,
