From Where Might I Obtain Replacement NICADS For The Me1 Flash

Discussion in 'Minox' started by david__|1, Nov 21, 1999.

  1. I have recently come into possession of a minox me1 electronic flash.
    The unit is non-functional as the nicads will no longer hold a charge.
    There are no markings on the batteries, so I am not sure as to their
    voltage and capacity. Does anybody have or know where I could obtain
    a replacement battery or find specifications relating to the original
    batteries?..any help would be greatly appreciated!
  2. David, ME-1 used a 2-in-one NiCad battery pack(2 x 1.2 v). For replacement parts you may phone Digikey at 1-800-344-4539 and ask for part number P232-LO21-ND Nicad pack. You need to solder the 2 in 1 pack yourself, careful about the polarity; and when testing, be careful not to touch to charged up capacitor in the ME-1 unit, it may give you a nasty shock.
    If they don't have it, ask them where can you find it.
    Please post a follow up and tell us about the progress of your project.
  3. Batteries for the ME 1 and ME 2 need to be high current discharge
    cells. The oringinals are now only those left on the shelves since
    production finished a number of years ago. However I have just been
    testing a new type of battery capable of the high current required
    with very good results. I am hoping to obtain a stock soon.
    Any queries please call 01264 737709 any evening.
