Due to the extreme kindness of Simon I now hold the last UK stock of spares. (Arrived this morning Simon, and there were cables!)

These have been donated on the basis that any proceeds go to Cambrian Mines Trust. (I hope to get Paypal sorted shortly, needed obviously for NAMHO 2019)

I have four only replacement cables, these would require soldering skills. No PCBs, but a quantity of other spares, as listed by Simon:

- A few lamp bodies (Rev. C/D/E)
- A few lamp bodies (Rev. F)
- Various metal components such as blade mount assemblies, entire back panel assemblies, bezels and 'webs' (the bit that holds the two optics behind the bezel)
- Various optics (standard narrow, standard wide and extra wide)
- Various new LEDs (R70, R100 and Rebel ES)
- LED carrier boards and PCB pins (only of use if doing C/D/E to F upgrades, I have a document on this, but no longer viable since most of the parts are no longer available)
- Lots of screws (long, for the lamp bezel / short, for the lamp back)
- Switch rings with magnets (useful)
- O-rings, large and small
- Ball bearings
- Magnets
- A handful of seals
- A few bits and bobs like thermal tape and allen keys

Can anyone in need please contact me by proper email only to roy@royfellows.uk as my system does not handle website PMs.

EDIT
Dont forget that I can modify by fitting XT60 connectors to run these lamps off my own 8V power banks.


EDIT -> Vanoord edited title to add 'parts'

Not quite the last... Shocked

I've still got a cardboard box in my office that contains:
- 6 battery chargers
- 1 headstrap
- 1 switch kit
- 4 screen kits
- 4 connector kits
- about a dozen 3M Dual Lock fasteners
- a couple of 9v battery connectors and an AA battery holder

No cable kits, though - so speaking nicely to Roy would be a good idea if you need one!

If anyone hasn't tried fiddling with the optics on a StenLight, it can be quite an, er, illuminating, experience!

Probably most of what I've got are listed on eBay, but if anyone's looking for something and can't find it there, drop me a PM.

I think that was 3 battery cables, and 1 old type (black) lamp cable? Just in case anyone is disappointed thinking there are the newer grey lamp cables up for grabs.

I could probably do with the lamp cable if one is available?

I was digging though the depths of the old stock in my office this morning and found a few remaining StenLight bits.

Now with reduced prices:

Mains battery charger - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292043355724

Cable connectors - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292043360941

Service kit - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302629764736


We've also got hold of a few more Fenix battery boxes which are suitable for a pair of 18650s and can be used as a power bank: with the correct connectors these can be used to power most headlamps - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292678891651

The battery box looks very good.
I assume that the cells are connected in series and not parallel?

As I understand it, Stenlights wont work below 5.2V.
No disrespect, but I think this needs to be clarified.

Also, suggest you post about this on UKC, quite a few Sten users on there.

It gives 7.2v assuming the 18650s are producing 3.6v, unlike the two I've just tried, which produce 0.1v between them! Laugh

Your insurance company may require you keep a fire extinguisher within a certain distance.

The best 'fire' brand I have seen is "Mailfire", no kidding. No wonder Royal Mail are uneasy about them.

I did come up with a practical use for them when I discovered that they fit neatly inside a shot hole, all I would need would be a dodgy fast charger. Probably just as good as Anfo.
