able to supply exchange replacements
based on robust IGUS Chainflex cable with
end match either original Tamiya connector or XT 60 to match my batteries.
I can make up a new cable PCB if required, but using the original is better.
The Chainflex cable is far superior to StenSats
original and is almost indestructible.
Note that early lamps identifiable by a flat 2 core
PCB cable indented along the middle are different. These are soldered into
the lamps PCB then passed through the back of the lamp and filled it in
with what looks like Plastic Metal. Its impossible to replace the cable
without chiselling out the filler and removing the PCB. These are fixed by
thermal tape but can be removed by getting the lamp hot and pushing
them out through the cable hole. However it usually trashes them because
removal procedure causes the PCB to bend. Its the way to fit a new one.
Basically a lamp of this type with damaged cable is impossible to repair
without fitting a new lamp PCB which is unobtainable in the UK.

have a stock of spares and will attempt repairs. I have no PCBs and the
existing PCB is a permanent installation (adhesive heat conductive tape)
that would require destruction of existing PCB to remove it. Consequently
repairs are very finicky. I have just fitted new emitters to a very dim
and useless lamp successfully and charged £25, thereby giving it a new
lease of life. However, I cannot guarantee success. Replacement lenses and
other parts are a different matter. Please ask.
