Need to change battery in my 4345 lantern - Camping, Backpacking & Hiking


If you are talking about the Coleman 4345 lantern it is rechargeable using one of the chargers (mains or car) stored in the base. Are you saying it won't recharge?

I purchased a lantern model # jasco 17300 and the light quit working after 6mos use


You may get it repaired but the cost will be the same as buy a new one or much more than get a new lambp. So I suggest you purchase one from online store:http://www.aurabuy.com/outdoors-76-led-ultra-bright-waterproof-headlamp-with-adjustable-band-black-silver-4-aa.html

Trying to find replacement bulbs for our Swissgear rechargeable camping lantern - the part numbers are on the bulbs (F4T5/D) but cannot find them anywhere. The closest I have come is finding the identical lantern, but no parts.

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!
