The switch on my red lumilite 4700 (6v) lantern does not work any more. Can I buy one? If so, where and how?

Looks like this is a case of, "if you can't fix it, feature it". I love that Lumilite but the switch is going... Put a 6V Remington rechargeable Lead Acid battery in it and it will outlast anything. Except, of course, the switch! Gotta be a workaround!

The switch on my unit is gone as well and unfortunately, I haven't kept my 25 year old receipt. Is it possible to replace the switch or am I better off to splurge for a new unit?

I have used LUMILITE 4700 KRYPTON for many years. I was very satisfied for a long time. I bought it in N.Y. 10 years ago. Now battery failed. Is there any opportunity to buy new battery in Prague - Czech Republic - Central Europe? Is it possible to use another type of battery for LUMILITE? Will you advise and help me ?

ME TOO on needing a new switch. Shame the company made a nice flashlight except for lack of repair parts. It otherwise wroks great.

Lumilite does not offer replacement switches. Instead you would have to return the whole thing to the retailer (with you receipt of course) for warranty replacement. Just another "stick it to the end user" that makes us #1 in the world.
