I inherited this from my dad. Until a kitten ate at the wires it worked perfictly. I want it to work again for my grandson.

I have had one of these for about 25 + years. The battery has finally said it is leaving. Has anyone come up with a new battery or a light as good?

My batts gave up also. Batts seem to be 1.25 ni-cads bulb is 2.4 volts. Suggest go to RS (take it apart and take unit with you) and check if c-cells are same size, batts seem to be same size, I dont have any handy to check. Try to get batts with solder tabs. Watch plus and minus when making pack. Will check back in a couple days and see how you did.

Wow, someone else has one of these. I tried replacing the battery in consulttion with a surly clerk at a batteries+ store and $18 later it didn't work. I'm going to still try since the charger works. I think it's just a matter of finding the right rechargeable. I've not been able to find a rechargeable that is at all close to this great model.

Can the battery be replaced & if so, where can it bought? This has been an excellent emergency light for 26 years & hate to give it up!
