Might interest some. Oldham lamps are now under new ownership having been sold by Enersys to Denchi Power.

wonder if Denchi were the ones manufacturing the Li-ion Oldham lamps anyway, Enersys were only distributing them. IP: 109.154.107.239

No. Don't know how long the Denchi deal has been underway, I would guess a good few months. However Oldham lamps and chargers have been manufactured at Enersys's Hungarian plant for a number of years now.

Interesting...I guess that could be where my bike battery comes from then, thats Enersys. I had assumed they were made stateside, hence the high price. IP: 109.154.107.239
