Hello! I was just wondering if there is a reason that the old Pelican extended battery packs are no longer offered? I ordered 5 cases about a year and a half ago and recently had 2 packs fail. The contact springs collapsed, which resulted in the battery pack itself to heat up and smell of burned plastic. If others have had similar problems I would like to know so that I can retire the other three and find alternative solutions.
Hi I have not heard of this feedback and we were using the 4 cell cases on our project for ~2-3 years. We have migrated to the 6 cell packs as they definately have longer run time in our experiance, and do better in cold weather. Please use only alakaline or lithium batteries in the 4 cell packs for best results; rechargables do not provide enough volts. FYI I am looking to provide a solar option as the insect horde in FL can run the D500x out of power in 10-14 nights on our projects there; if you are in a similar situation check back for availability or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org -JC
