- Good, if you get one that works
I have had one of these NRG battery packs for my apollo lantern for several years and it has
worked brilliantly. I liked it so much that I put another lamp and NRG battery kit on my wish list.
So, I was bought one as a gift. The new charger though just will not charge. The lantern
works fine - as great as the previous one (I put the battery from the old one to check that it
works). But, it is clear that the battery won't charge. I install the battery into the lamp (correctly! -
i.e. the same way as I do in the other, identical lantern, that works fine and has been doing so for some years) and no light comes on indicating it is charging and, even after 24 hours, it has no
charge. The only thing that has happened is that the battery has become a little warm.
So, I am rather disappointed in the battery pack this time around.
