As you may have read from the trip report to Brighton on Saturday, my D8 torch flooded on the way down. What's not in the report is the way it exploded on the way up! The whole head burst off and the battery went plummeting into the depths. My buddy (I must tell her Mark thinks she's luscious!) managed to catch the head.

So the question is - can you get a replacement battery for the D8. If so how much does it cost?

Not sure if the battery is the same as the ones in my UK1200R but if they are
have a look at this THREAD from a few days ago, had some useful links on it

The D8 is distributed by Sea & Sea and they only deal through dive shops etc. Replacement battery is about £91. Sea & Sea Ltd 01803 663012 if you want to call yourself.

It may be worth giving the people at the following link a ring. It would appear they can do specialist Batteries

Thanks fior the replies. does anyone happen to know the specs on the D8 rechargeable battery? ie volatge, size type etc? Will also need to make sure the rest of the torch is still functional. Might actually be worth just buying a cheap D4 rechargeable to tide me over till I can afford a canister light!

You might be better getting a 2nd hand D8R. There's a few in the small ads HERE. This way you would have a handful of spare bits as well. Remember your bulbs are probably Donald Ducked. They'll set you back abot £25 also.
