Rick, I have owned this item for years and wondered why i could never get the lid to go down. Now that you have one NIB I think it may just be the way it is made. Even the picture on this page shows the lid sticking up a bit. Nice find.

I've got one of these MAGNA-LUX lighter/flashlights. I found mine unused (NOS), in the box with instructions. The battery was of course dead, it it's called a "SEALED WET PACK 2V BATTERY" and the instructions say it should last about 5 months. At the time, a replacement battery from Magna-Lux cost .75 each. Bulbs were .40 a piece. You could send the lighter in for service at a cost of fifty cents plus parts. Although mine is NIB, the lid won't seat all the way down. I've looked it over and took it apart, but I don't see a way to adjust the lid so it will close all the way. ANY IDEAS? I'd like it to close properly for display. Thanks in advance!

i got mine to work by using an old hearing aid battery which happened to be 2 volt. it was a large old 'national-health' type which was larger than those made today & had the wiring to connect it up.

Replacement batteries are no longer available for these lighters. If you look at the old ones, you'll see that they even look like little wet cells--definitely not standard issue. I keep meaning to experiment with a couple of 3v lithium button cells as a functional replacement. More voltage, possibly even about the same reserve. I just don't want to burn out the heating element.
