i think it takes lead acid batteries as rechargeable flashlights from that period did, but i could be wrong.

Anybody ever crack one of these open? My guess is it has nicad batteries. I'd like to convert mine old one to nickel metal hydried and LED bulb(s).

I have one of these. I need to dig it out or storage and put it back it to working order.

I came across 2 of these in my garage. I recharged them and they work, but they don't hold a charge for more than a day or two. Should it hold a charge for a longer period?
