Re: Eclair ACL voltage for ACL motor?

While re-celling battery packs , it might be worth considering NiMh cells .
They are much higher capacity than Nicads for the same physical size &
weight , & in my experience are much more reliable

I have recelled my onboard batteries for my ACL II and its a rather easy
process. I assume you have split the cases by removing the 4 screws that
them together. All you need to do remove the two power leads (12V, and
from the nicad assembly (comprised of (10) 1.2V nicad cells and bring the
assembly to your nearest Batteries Plus. They will assemble a new battery
(they weld the batteries together just like the factory with solder tabs).
Just resolder the leads and reassemble.

For greater capacity (longer running) using a higher milli amp rating. The
batteries (Hard Black Plastic Cases) had a 1200 mah rating. I used 1800 or
2200 milliamp batteries. Never had a problem and have recelled batteries
both my previous ACL II and ARRI SR onboard batteries
