I have a Johnlite Super SearchEye 10,000,000 candle power lantern that has been sitting for quite awile without use. Turning it on produced a very din light in the bulb then it went out after a bit. I recharged the battery (15 hours) and tried again, same thing. Can the battery be damaged? I'll thank you in advance, Ed Phillips

I received this for Christmas and used it only twice in January. I went to use it this week and it lit up for a few minutes and died. I tried charging it until the green light came on. I unplugged the power cord I was using to charge it and tried to turn the light on, no light. I charged it for 12 hours, the green light was flashing, but the bulbs do not come on. What are my next steps?


Plugged it into the Vector to charge, the see if the Vector would light up without a problem, if it lights then your battery is shot.

Rechargeable mag light not working .


When you dropped it you probably knocked the contacts inside out of place. or you broke a soldered connection. if you can take it apart you can most likely fix this yourself. when you remove the front lens assembly there is a retaining clip that you need to remove so you can take the guts out.....please rate this

I just bought a retro rechargeable sealed battery,recently. I charged it for 18 hours,the lights all worked,but I don't remember the green light comming on.i put the lantern away for 3 months or so.i decided to check the the battery light out first week of june, the light was there,then I said let me charge it up again, I never seen any green light come on showing it was fully charged. I took the battery out and checked the wires to see if there was a break. None that I could tell. After you take the battery out ,there is another section square that covers where the bulb is located,but I didn't touch that part yet. Stuck" on this one. Help"
