    Default METZ hammerhead charger question

    HORRORS!

    My Metz 60 series charger, 120/220V 50-60Hz 7V -600mA went kaa-putt! Now dunch know how to charge me batts.

    I found a working Metz 45 series charger. All specs the same, except it's lower capacity:

    6.8V - 400mA.



    I take it the '6.8V' is the actual current going into the battery, and the X00 mA is tha rate of charging per hour.


    Do you think it's safe for the charger, batt holder where the capacitor is and the battery if I use this lower powered transformer even if it will take a lot longer to charge?

    Please, if anyone knows, share here because if cannot charge the battery, it will die after some time.

    Thanks in advance.

    4.8V is the voltage, not the current. If you old charger is 7V, I'm guessing 4.8V will not charge your battery.

    Oh, my bad.

    So the battery won;t kenar charged even if I leave it 'charging' long long?

    CORRECTION:

    the 'smaller' charger is 6.8V -400mA, and not 4.8V. My bad. Darned small letters. Changed the original post.

    should be able to charge as long as the polarity is correct and the voltage is higher than the battery. it'll slow charge since it's only 6.8v instead of 7v. maybe you might want to find other 7v 400mA adapter and use it with the original metz connecter.

    my 2 cents worth.
