I have multiple GE Rechargeable Flashlights Desc. # GE7905-PFNL with a built in night light bought around the same time. The flashlights work fine but the night lights on each device no longer function. There doesn't seem to be a way to open the unit to replace a bulb. A new unit is $20+ each and if I can repair that would be preferred to buying new ones. Any advice? Thank you in advance!
I uncovered my flashlight like this tonight going through a box of stuff to still be unpacked and came across your question as the only result of a Google search for replacement information. Eventually I decide to, and succeeded at getting it apart, and then I found, in a search for a replacement battery, this very good review of the product with pictures of disassembly and battery replacement.
Rather than post my own pictures, it seemed simpler to just link to the other review. It's well written. I'll just say that I used another method of separating the end caps. They are designed with a snap-together arrangement, but are obviously glued as well, probably with cyanoacrylate adhesive (aka Super Glue). That's really the only challenge with disassembly.
The battery is an H110BC NiMH 3.6v battery assembly made from a stack of 3 1.2V button batteries. These seem to be easily available. Also, that search led me to the Sylvania version of this product, still widely available. (Sylvania was previously a GE company, but now appears to be associated with Osram. This would explain the complete dearth of information connected with the GE part number for this flashlight.)
Anyway, I hope this helps you. Oh, I just bought a bunch of these online. Here's a list of stores that sell them.
