I ran across six brand-new unopened RLBAT batteries that I had squirreled away for Y2K. I would like to get $10 for one and I checked with the post office and it looks like $5 would cover the shipping. So, bottom line, I'm asking $15 bucks each. Anyone interested?

Cleaning my shop and garage. I found two First Alert Series 102R Rechargeable Flashlights in good condition, but with no batteries. I understand batteries are no longer available. Anyone have a suggestion for rigging substitutes. Or, is anyone interested in the flashlights?

Have looked at all sources mentioned in comments for batteries and no luck. Has anybody found suitable replacement batteries for this unit? If so, can you please include specific ordering informtion.

Thanks
Feb 20, 2008 - 11:20 PM

You can get the batteries from Batteries America (on the internet.) I've dealt with them for years, they're good. It is an unusual lead-acid cell, like a miniature car battery. Do NOT let the old ones leak on anything! If the light lights but it won't charge, 95% chance it is the 2 batteries. -Phil

How and where can I buy a new RL100H flashlight? I had one and would like to replace it.
Apr 1, 2007 - 4:06 PM
  Frances
I have not been able to find a replacement bulb for my RL 100 H flashlight. It is still in very good condition & taking the charge very well. I have tried Home Depot to no avail.
Mar 15, 2007 - 10:20 PM
  Tony
Herbert / Dennis:
If the RL100H uses the rectangular 2V lead acid battery (RLBAT), you may be able to still get them from First Alert. The page http://www.firstalert.com/ReplacementParts.aspx
has them listed for $6.50 each.

Rob:
First Alert made some similar units in the late '90s; I have three 102Rs (similar to above,
but off-white with blue switch, beam adjust, and plug), and a 50R (same color scheme, but 2V, narrower body, no swivel). They're available if anyone is interested (I'd trade for FL-10s or Series 15s); contact me at tonym924@gmail.com.
