I have two of these lanterns. Where (if at all) can I find the batteries to go with them. Dry Cell Lantern type with enclosed instructions on how to use. I am not even sure they work but would need the batteries to find out. They are not exactly in pristine condition.

I found a vendor who manufactures a battery that works well. It is the same size as the #6 with screw nuts on top. cegasa model ALR 40/200 Made in Spain.

The #6 / Eveready EN-6 / Military BA-23 battery has been discontinued pretty much across the board. A few places still have stock of an HO-6 battery that is powered by alkaline cells but doesn't quite match the amp-hours. However, even the HO-6 is not widely available--it doesn't appear to be available retail, and some of the web sites that have an entry for it show it to be out of stock. I am reluctantly thinking that I may have to fabricate my own replacement out of PVC pipe and stuff with some D cells stuffed in it (cheaper than F cells).
