I am looking for replacement batteries for a Nicholl Brothers Model 100 lantern. Is there any place they can be purchased or is there a substitue battery that can be used?

My model 211 had a broken main bulb socket almost from the beginning, and it never got used much. The battery has long ago died. Is a similar flashlight available for replacement by the manufacturing company?

I have an "Executive" 500 Model - I replaced the battery - checked the light bulb - rotated the battery in order to determine the correct placement for contact - and still no light!!
Can you please send me a desciptive booklet so that I might explore further??

I have a model 500 similar to the above photo The Executive markings on one and Ford Parts and Service Division Awards Banquet Spring, 1980 printed on reverse side with original instruction tag still hanging on handle. Everything intact, new battery and new bulb has failed to make it work???? All wires are connected. Nice unit design with wire stand incorporated in body. Keep trying to fix!

I have a lantern from Nicholl Brothers. It is brown and marked model 500. It came with a sholder strap, colored bulb covers and a draw strap carring case. Marked 'The Executive" on side. Used to work fine until a wire was accidently pulled out of the potted connection area. Are these easy to repair?

This was originally Mfg. by Nicholls Co. in KC. This was sold to Brinkman Corp. & continued in KC until Brinkman moved all operations to Dallas area. Might contact them.

I have a "Dark Blazer" Rechargeable-exactly as shown in ad- (about 20 years old) in perfect shape. Works well on recharge, but does NOT respond when on battery. Is a suitable battery still available ? Or is there another alternative. ? I would like to rehabilitate this flashlight. Do you take orders, if availability exists?
Thank you,
