so i lost my charger for my blowtorch niterider, and instead of a 80 dollar charger, i was going to make my own by cutting a surlock cable and soildering it to a chager. i have the 13.2 nicmh water bottle. the charger i was planning on using is a 500ma with 14-15 vlts.

if any objecttions speak now....

also, the surlock is a niterider only? or can i get the cables somewhere else? i was also going to make a new batt.

also, also... does anybody know how many cells the waterbottle battery is?

Probably not a smart charger, but it doesn't have to say so. I've used dumb chargers on my nimh batteries, but they did have a timer on them to limit how long they would charge. Try not to overcharge the batteries. Maybe 12 hours max? Most dumb chargers charge at 1/10 capacity, so 10 hours to actually charge the battery.
