I LOVE my P. flashlight but the battery seems to be out. Is it really replaceable or disposable? Thanks!

Mine is still working and I have had it since 1997. I keep misplacing it,so it has't been used all that much. I just found it again this morning and it works just like new. Love it.Make more. Great invention.

  HMM....
GRANTED....THE SHAPE IS COOL...VERY STREAMLINED...I JUST DONT LIKE DISPOSABLE STUFF...(OUTSIDE OF TOILETPAPER) SUCH A WASTE FOR OUR LANDFILLS...THIS LIGHT SHOULD TAKE REPLACEABLE (TRIPLE A BATTERIES) 3 OF THEM....INSTEAD OF THE THROWAWAY GEL BATTERY...THEN IT WOULD BE A WINNER IN MY OPINION...BUT....COOL LOOKIN LIGHT NONE THE LESS...

I bought a package of these at Pace Warehouse Club many years ago. All of them still work today, 2011. Several have been left in my car the whole time, experiencing freezing and summer heat and still work fine. The most reliable flash light I have ever had. I wish Polaroid would make more.
These are so reliable they need to make these for the military.

I also bought 15 packs of 4 PolaPulses for my Boy Scout Troop back in 1997 and they are still going strong. These were used in our tents, looking for a tree late at night and other general use while camping. We also found that when the light started to dim, if you squeezed the pack some, the light would get brighter. The lights were turned in after each camp out and are still going strong. We've used them in Church services when the electricity was out to see the Hymns.

One of the best flashlight's that I've owned. If not the best. Do I just purchase a new one? And if I need to purchase one who sell them this light or do you have a better one.

Where can I purchase a battery for my Polaroid "Pola Pulse" Squeeze Flashlight? I believe it is disposable, but would love to replace the battery. If can't, then where can I purchase more of these flashlights? Thank you so much!

I would appreciate if there was any chance to replace the battery(bag)
in this flashlight.This is not very usual battery-type. Mine is almost worn out, and it was wery handy to have inside my pocket. Got this flashlight along with changin my car battery.It's easy to change, but to get it in Sweden seems to be hard.
Best regards.

Every Survival Kit I design has one of these lights in it! I made a Kit up 12 years ago, and the light is still working to this day! Thay are superb, and I recommend them.

hey kids, take apart any old polaroid film pack, trim it down close to the edges, then cut away the center of the cardboard so the metal switch can make contact. ten more years for free. and it's the "green" thing to do, too!

I have few original replacement batteries for this flashlight. If anyone outhere intrested, they can contact me at: b.melus@sbcglobal.net Batteries are last production run from 2006, measuring 6.2 Volts, giving out very bright light.

My mother has one of these - and it went dark. I opened it to see what I could do for her. Yes - a flat battery, a bit like a gellpack battery. Although it didn't have enough juice to make light, it still put out 6V. I gave it a few very hard squeezes around the pack, and it now has enough juice to light the globe again. I don't know how long it will last though.

Does anyone know - To replace the battery, can one simply take apart a Polaroid film pack (per Jparenti)? Or is there some other source?

I bought my polaroid flashlight 1997 in the Dollar Tree store. It looked cool & worked good. I left it in the glove compartment for emergencies. Three cars later,I still have it. It's dirty but still works. I can't believe it too. $4.00 for a 10 year plus flashlight,that's a great deal!

I believe the battery is the same kind employed in an ordinary Polaroid film pack.
