I got one at goodwill today, I think mine is the stellar brand. The top is rounded, It didn't have the base that screws on. Anyone have any parts for sale on junkers.

HA cool, got one of these at a swapmeet for like $3.00 put in a new battery and presto works like magic! :) So far bulbs havent burned out, but if they do anyone know what to replace it with? So this is only worth $5.00 though? hmm oh well treasure to me! Espicially since it is in perfect condition! No dents, rust spots, cracks etc.! :)

the bulb for the top red light is a flasher bolb [goes on and off when it heats up.] Don't know if they are still avalable. My lantern says on the bottom "another ASH FLASH product - hong kong british empire " it's like new condition and I'd sell it if the price was more than shipping costs.

This light takes a standard 6 volt lantern battery and bulb (I forget the PR number for it, but it's a common bulb still in production). You can even "juice up" this lantern by substituting a MagLite super-bright bulb designed for 4-D flashlights--today's 6v lantern batteries are often nothing more than 4 D cells wired together.

I have one of these lanterns. Do you know if the batteries or bulbs are available any where? I may be interested in buying yours to make a pair if they are.

What are the best batteries to use for this?

The model I have is finished with a light green metallic paint. All exterior threaded parts are chromed. Small stamping on side of base reads HONG KONG BRITISH EMPIRE
