Customer Reviews of Hope 2 Cell ES Battery
Debated over buying a new battery for my 7 year old Hope R4, or buying a new head torch when my original battery started dying unpredictably. Glad I did, the Hope is back to its usual brilliance and run times are much improved. Added plus is that the battery charge indicator gives a good idea of how much power is left. One less thing to landfill!
One thing to note if you do use this as a head torch battery, it’s slightly heavier than the original battery but it hasn’t adversely affected the overall balance on my head at least.
I bought this as a spare to go with a 3 year old Hope R4. The head torch has been absolutely superb but I found charging the old style batteries tricky (connection loose).These are a real improvement.My original charge cable fits snugly and the battery charge indicator is a very useful addition.I can't rate the head torch / battery highly enough (and the team at Hope were very helpful sorting out previous charging issue with old battery).
