I have 2 of these flashlights and loved them--until each suddenly stopped working (like Sharon Smith said on 5/28/08).....why is this? New batteries don't do it. The light did't even dim to say it was time to change batteries. I have a previous version of the workhorse mini flashlight, many years old, and THAT ONE is STILL working!!! How can I repair the other 2 I have?

From what I hear there must be a lot of people that want this little flashlight. When are you going to make them available or if they already are please advise us how to acquire them.

Rayovac must be asleep. How can we encourage them to continue making these little dandies available?

I have cases of these from when I owned a business in the 90's. I'm having to throw the boxes away because of the batteries that were enclosed in them but the flashlights are brand new. Would sell anyone interested lots of 10 for 5.00 plus shipping or you can pick them up in norfolk, Virginia. Thanks

The bulb in this flashlight CAN be replaced. If you open it up and look at the light end, you will see a while plastic piece. Molded into this piece is the word "OPEN" and two arrows. Twisting this piece in the direction of the arrows will unlock this white piece, where it can be lifted away and allow the bulb to be removed. Just reverse the twisting direction to lock the bulb back in place.

I found on E-Bay & purchased 3 of these. They came from National Sportsman Suppl6 2511 Forest Parkway Ellenwood GA 30294. Good Luck.
I agree they are dandy little Workhorses.

Have had one of these flashlights for years and love it. Just went dead and can't be revived with new batteries. Thought the problem might be the bulb but it doesn't appear that it can be changed. What stores carry this little workhorse.
