29.05.2006Monday 29 May – Torches & Battery Chargers

It seems my website permission problems have been fixed, but dom_xml is still not working.
I ordered a Fenix L1T LED torch from Torchworld, and a torch bike mount, express post, so hopefully that gets here nice and fast.
I dropped my form into Centrelink, and caught the train from there to town, where I went looking for a cheap battery charger at Dick Smith’s and Jaycar. It turns out it’s not possible to buy cheap battery chargers that will charge batteries in anything other than multiples of two, and as the torch I’ve just ordered only uses a single AA battery, having to charge two at a time wouldn’t be particularly optimal. So, I ended up buying a fifty dollar charger from Jaycar—far more than I had wanted to pay, but it seems relatively fancy, with an LCD display and all. It also has corroded terminals, which seems a little odd, and I suspect I’ll have to go exchange it.
