Eveready 6volt plastic flashlights do not work more than once.


I would switch over to a small LED flashlight -- the one I've had in my car for two perhaps three years is about the size of a roll of quarters and I got from Harbor Freight as one of their giveaways. Regular alkaline batteries seem to work fine but for cold weather I'd recommend using Lithium batterties.

Flashlight batteries stuck in body


There are a couple of ways that can free a cell that has expended and is wedged inside a light. One is to remove the tailcap and rap the end of the battery tube squarely against a piece of soft wood like pine. It will keep from damaging the end of the battery tube and the shock my slowly work the cell out of the light until it comes out. Another is to tie a strong cord around the head of the light so that when you hang it the tail end is hanging down. Remove the tailcap, of course, and go outside to a safe place where a flying battery won't hurt anyone or anything. Start swinging the light as fast as you can so that centrifugal force can pull the stuck cell out of the battery tube. There are a couple of other things you can do if the cell is near enough to the end of the battery tube.. If you have a soldering iron and can reach to the end of the battery with it, try soldering a strong length of wire to the end of the battery and pull the cell out. I hope one of these helps. ;)

I've owned this flashlight for years. In the comments above, ignore the instruction to remove the rubber casing around the lamp area. Simply grasp the whole front of the lamp piece (including the rubber cover), and twist in a counter-clockwise direction to remove. Then squeeze together the two black tabs and pull the battery compartment out to replace the batteries.

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
