Does anyone know what is the specification of the pilot bulb inside the original Beaulieu 5008 charger rated at 50mA. You know the square grey box type.

I also wouldn't mind finding out the specs for the 4008 (30mA) and the R16 (90mA) chargers.

Thanks!

It's an LED isn't it? If so, it should never go out-- if it does, there's a bigger fault than that.

They're just trickle chargers-- you could use any of close voltage the only problem would be the connectors.

Hi Jim,

The ones I'm talking about use an actual bulb and I think the bulb might have something to do with the current regulation. That's why I need the exact value. Besides, I want to restore the unit to it's original functioning.

4008: 30mA charger, 2,5V 0,06A fuse bulb.
5008: 50mA charger, 6V 0,6A.
R16: 50mA charger, 6V 0,6A.
R16: 90mA charger, 1,5V 0,1A.
I have several.

Thank you Bjorn, that is exactly the information I needed.

I would like to obtain some. Please contact me by private message to give me information on ordering.

Thanks.

I finally did order the bulbs from Bjorn and they work fine.

However, I should correct some information.

Bjorn gave this as the different bulb's rating:
4008: 30mA charger, 2,5V 0,06A fuse bulb.
5008: 50mA charger, 6V 0,6A.
R16: 50mA charger, 6V 0,6A.
R16: 90mA charger, 1,5V 0,1A.

No problem for the 4008 and R16 90mA information.

For the two 50mA chargers, it should read:
5008: 50mA charger, 6V 0,6W (which is 0,1A or 100mA)
R16: 50mA charger, 6V 0,6W (which is 0,1A or 100mA)

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

The bulb is a part of the circuitry and the thing doesn't work when the bulb is loose or broken.
The bulb is a standard component and can be bought everywhere. Check for example www.conrad.de
Or shops around the corner so to say.
