Can't open up to replace battery on headlamp - Black Diamond Equipment 620593 CHILI PEPPER Gizmo Chili Pepper


Aspen643-Look for a slot on the top. There will be a gray tab in it that must be pushed in while gently prying apart the two halves of the headlamp.Hope this helps.Regards,DIYpro

Petzl Tikka Plus Headlamp has a short and is eating batteries


There's really not much that's serviceable in these things. Try cleaning all the terminals again but this time use VINEGAR instead of alcohol which does not neutralize the corrosion as vinegar does. Just dip a q-tip in the vinegar and swab it on the terminals, then with a dry one, swab up the excess. Then install all NEW batteries, do not mix old ones with new ones as the new ones cannot make the old ones work any better than they are used. If they still don't work, welome to the world of cheap products that are intended to be tossed when they quit functioning. Good luck. :)
