I notice that some of your products say they use an 18650 Lithium-ion Rechargeable battery. Can I use another brand of 18650 Lithium-ion battery in any of these products?

No.  Our 18650 Lithium-ion Rechargeable battery packs are of a proprietary design that is product specific. An ordinary 18650 Lithium-ion battery will not work in our lights. 

 

Can I use rechargeable batteries in one of your lights that normally use non-rechargeable batteries?

A rechargeable Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) of the appropriate size can be used. However, rechargeable Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries cannot be used.  The battery voltage of a Lithium-ion battery is too high and can cause damage to the light.  This applies ONLY to products that are NOT Intrinsically Safe Certified.  

 

Which batteries can I use as replacements in my Intrinsically Safe Lights?

Only use the approved batteries listed for each product. Using different batteries or mixing the approved batteries will invalidate the Intrinsically Safe Certification.

Can I replace the rechargeable battery in one of your lights that does not have a replacement battery?

No. If the battery is not listed in the Instruction Manual as being replaceable, Bayco Products does not support end-user replacement of the battery.

I have a light that has a charging port built into the light itself.  Can I run the light while it is plugged into the charging cord?

The light will function while it is plugged in, however we do not recommend operating any of our lights in this manner.  Depending on the operating mode the light may use more power than the charger is able to supply and could cause overheating of the light and/or the charging cord.

 

I have one of your Dual-Light Flashlights.  When I turn on both the flashlight and the floodlight at the same time, both lights seem to dim.  Why is this?

This is normal behavior, there is nothing wrong with your light.  The microprocessor inside of the light automatically dims both lights as a way to control power consumption and to manage heat dissipation from the LEDs.

 

I have been told that I may need to “condition” the battery in my rechargeable light.  What does this mean, and why is it necessary?

Our rechargeable lights use either Nickel Metal Hydride or Lithium-ion batteries. In both cases “conditioning” will improve the performance and run-time of the product over time. To condition a new rechargeable light, plug it into the charger and allow it to fully charge. Once the light is charged, disconnect it from the charger and turn it on. Leave the light on until the light stops running.  You will now have fully drained the battery. At that point, plug the light into the charger and allow it to fully charge again.  It is recommended to repeat this process at least 2 or 3 times for optimum performance of your light. Once your light’s rechargeable battery is fully conditioned, this process does not need to be repeated for Lithium-ion batteries unless the battery is replaced with a new one.  If your battery is a Nickel Metal Hydride, it is recommended to recondition the battery monthly.

  

How do I change the batteries in my headlamp?

Please see the image on the specific product detail page on this website.  

  

What should I use as a replacement AC Power Supply for my rechargeable light?

If you need to select a replacement AC Power Supply, you should first make sure that the barrel port connector fits properly.  As long as the power supply has an 8-12V DC Output Power Supply, it will charge any of our products.

How do I wind my cord onto my Kord Manager Storage Reel so I can use the cord?

What’s the difference between Explosion Proof and Intrinsically Safe lights?

Here’s a simple explanation of each:

Explosion Proof

An Explosion Proof light is constructed with an outer housing of a sufficient enough structure such that WHEN an explosion occurs within the devise, the design of the housing retains the explosion long enough for the ignited materials to cool down to a temperature below the ignition point of the outside atmosphere.

Intrinsically Safe

An Intrinsically Safe light is independently certified to be incapable of generating enough heat, energy or spark to cause an explosion in the hazardous environment that it’s rated for, even if there’s a fault in the product.
