I recently purchased 5 double packs of 9V Energizer Batteries to replace in my CO/SMOKE ALARMS which I have 8 detectors. The alarm was chirping and had the batteries checked and they all checked out as borderline, which causes my smoke alarms to go off. I did not save the original packaging. Do I have any recourse with this? The markings on the batteries are: 9Volts 03-2013 Pile Alcaline/ 9V Size 522 6lr616am6-9V/ This is all the information I see on the batteries, if you need more, please let me know asap. The cost was quite high, and will have to replace the ones I just purchased because of low power, as I had them checked at 2 different hardware stores to make certain they were low. Thank you.

Try calling the battery company or taking them back to the store where you bought them. Most will have a date code on the batteries so you want to always check them when buying as old batteries that have set on the shelf for a while will eventually loose thier charge

How to repair SunLight Underwater Kinetics SL6 Dive Light


Corrosion is a problem! I found that WD40 with a hard bristle tooth brush sometimes does the trick. Clean the corrosion and check that it hasn't corroded completely through the coil or where it connects. Replace the batteries and try again. If it has a standard filament light globe it can be checked with a multimeter ( should show around 7 ohms).

LED Flashlight Battery Drain Problem


This particular flashlight uses a microchip that consumes the power of the batteries, whether in use or not. Loosen the case to where the batteries go in, so there is no contact with polarity. Or just take the batteries out completely and replace them for actual use. GGBMDB

I have a 6-7 year old Rayovac Workhorse Lantern- I bought 2 new 6 volt batteries and 2 new tube bulbs for it but it still doesn't work. How and where should I take it to be checked?


The odds that both bulbs went out at the same time is pretty low, actually. It's more likely that there's corrosion in the on-off switch or that an internal wire may have come loose. It's also possible--and I've made this mistake myself--that one of the 6-volt batteries has been put in backwards so that the polarity is not properly aligned for both batteries.With all that said, here are a few simple tests you can do.1. Check the batteries. If you have a battery tester, are both batteries good? If so, check they are properly installed and making good contact with their terminals.2. Pull the bulbs out and use a voltmeter to check that you have voltage going to each bulb tube. This basically means switching the light on and touching each of the terminals where the bulb(s) would clip in. You should see a strong voltage reading on one or both tubes-I believe that this light is designed to keep working, even if one of the bulbs is burned out.3. If you don't get a reading from the bulb terminals, the on-off switch or wiring leading to is is the prime suspect. You may have to disassemble the light housing to get into that, which may not be particularly easy. At this point, you might want to call Rayovac customer service and see what they might do for you under their alleged lifetime warranty for flashlights. You may be able to send it in (holding onto the bulbs for yourself) and get a free replacement.Good luck!

I have a GE battery powered (4 D cells) camping lantern. It will not turn on. The batteries are new and have been tested. Is there a way to remove the fluorescent and check?


Fluorescent lamps need a high voltage in order to ionise the gas inside and make them light up..Torch batteries will not produce enough voltage alone so the battery voltage is boosted by an inverter that is incorporated into the torch or lamp body. It is unfortunate but the majority of such lamp inverters use the cheapest, nastiest, flimsiest circuitry it is possible to use in such things and having taken a few lamps and torches (of respectable brands) apart and seen such things I find it easy to imagine they were thrown together in a far eastern handbag factory when there was a world slump in handbag sales. When working correctly the inverter produces a voltage high enough to really surprise anyone touching the wrong parts but they do tend to be unreliable due to the usually low quality. A handy person could conceivably persuade such a lantern to dismantle and check the switch and wiring and ensure the battery voltage is reaching the inverter but it would need electronic experiece to venture further into the reasons why it stopped working. A replacement tube could be tried but they fail rarely and rarely do they operate long enough to actually wear out so buying a new tube is likely to be wasted money.
