Vista Lite replacement globes

Postby Kalgrm » Sat May 26, 2007 3:24 pm

Anyone know where I can get a 5W 6v and a 10W 6v halogen globe set for a Vista Lite? I blew both of mine when my Li-ion battery "smart" charger over-volted my battery. (Sound effects: click - POP - "Showtime" .... click - POP - "Showtime!")

An online store would be fine, but an LBS or lighting shop in the Perth area would be better.

Cheers,
Graeme

Are you sure that's what happened? Over-charging has consequences...

"Li-ion chemistry is not safe as such, and a Li-ion cell requires several mandatory safety devices to be built in before it can be considered safe for use outside of a laboratory. These are: shut-down separator (for overtemperature), tear-away tab (for internal pressure), vent (pressure relief), and thermal interrupt (overcurrent/overcharging). The devices take away useful space inside the cells, and add an additional layer of unreliability. Typically, their action is to permanently and irreversibly disable the cell."

It's a 7.2v battery. I tested the battery with a voltmeter that night and it said 8.6v. So I am assuming the high voltage means it was over-volted.

I could be wrong, of course. It has been known to happen occasionally. :wink:

Just placed an order through Lightingpro. Torpedo7 does not show the lights I was after: they only seem to have 15w globes.
