I purchased one of these on eBay and I am not sure if it is missing a part. I also have a model 100 with the red light on the back but the front light appears to be the same. What I would like to know is how is the sealed beam held in? On my 101 there is a springy C-shaped wire clip that goes in front of the beam to hold it in place but on the 100 there is a band of metal that goes around the outside of the metal housing and overhangs the beam to keep it in place. This band is tightened with a screw to hold it together. Thanks for any help people can give me.

Guys, the batteries are so pricey. I actually cut open a spent battery case carefully with a hacksaw below the top lip and dumped the cells out of it. I mounted a 6v 4.0 Ah Sealed Lead Acid Battery in the case, connected it to the threaded posts and attached the lid back to the battery. I can now easily recharge the battery whenever I need to. The best bit is the cost. The sealed lead aicd battery only cost me $10.00 (Australian) and the charger was $25.00. Considering the large batteries cost $20.00, re-packing a case with a SLA battery is a very viable option. Hope this helps. I can email you photos of my method if you like. Regards, Rich
