Hi all,

I did have to buy a replacement charger / power adaptor a few years ago and remember Emerson wanted a lot of money for it, something like AUD$350.00.

Now I would like to buy a spare but not at that price.  I have found out that a particular Toshiba charger has the same specs so bought 2 of those from eBay at a much more attractive cost.

Question is does anyone know what the large black cylinder is for on the original CSI charger - see pic.

The Toshiba plug is of different size so I'll have to replace that but that's OK. rgds

It is a electrical filter filter that exist on some of those, there are similar snap on solutions if you like to have the same. I will see if I can find a similar example. It keeps out noise Not always required unless you need to comply to like CE regulations IMHO. Olov

Thanks Oli for a quick response.  I guess I was trying to get a feel for whether my instrument could be damaged without it.  So it sounds like it will be fine without. Don't worry I won't fly to Sweden to find you if it doesn't. [smile] rgds.

Some 2130's may have NiCad and some may have NiMH batteries and ideally they should be using different chargers, so use some care in using that Toshiba.  You could shorten the battery life by using an improper charger.  You might want to review the thread at http://www.maintenance.org/topic/csi-a2130-2q-analyser-battery where someone is after a replacement battery.  In that thread is a link to "opening" the 2130 to get to access the battery.  The link provided, a company named PorterMAx also makes a line of chargers for the 2130 (around US$100) which can be viewed at http://portermax.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=63_64.  They apparently will ship to foreign destinations.

Thanks for the advise John.  I have bought from Portermax before so might go that way. I have a brand new charger for 2120 here (can't find it though) and I am told it too can be used on 2130. Except the charge rate is a little lower so it will take longer. rgds

Or just send me your address, and pay the freight, and I'll send you a 2130 charger!
