I worked for Engineered Magnetics in California, a division of Gulton Industries,in 1960-1962. We built & tested the power supplies for the guidance systems for various components of the space program. (Skybolt, Gemini, etc.). I purhased a Gulton cigarette lighter, am/fm radio, camping lantern, and a couple of other items through our employee purchase program. (Unfortunately, my ex-wife got custody of all of them....).I certainly would like to know if any of these items are still available, and how to locate them.

I have a Gulton rechargable cigarette lighter with plastic case and wooden base. Got it from my grandmother. Are they repairable? Would like to sell it. What are they worth?

The lighter was made in 1966. Wish I still had mine even though I quit smoking many years ago.

Leslie & Edith Gulton were my grandparents. I just spent a nostalgic day returning to Metuchen, NJ and seeing the site of the old Gulton Industries plant, where I roamed around with awe as a youngster. Other than eBay, I would love to know where one might be able to purchase products from Gulton Industries from the '50's and '60's. I have a radio and a flashlight. Any information would be much appreciated.

I worked at Gulton way back around 1979 and was involved in battery R&D.
It was good to see a web site concerning our old flashlight still "alive".
P.S. I believe Gulton is still around but in a different product than flashlights.
It seems the big product is thermal printheads etc. now.

I worked for Gulton Ind. for several years during the time they manufactured these things. I had one of them and purchased others for family members. They did not last long, due to the charging circuit and nicad battery. If it is not working it is a dead battery or a capacitor in the charging circuit has failed in the open mode. Repairs should be handled by a pro due to the fact they did not use a transformer to step down the voltage from the wall outlet, just the limiting capacitor. Lethal voltages are inside while charging. This unit was very unique in its day. I also had one of the rechargeable cigerette lighters they made.
