Tried to charge my Coleman Retro Lantern, the red light for charging is on but after 24hrs charging, I take the charger off and try to turn the lantern on, it wont work. How can I fix this problem? Thanks Tilly


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"

In the Coleman 5312 Retro Series Lamp is it supposed to work off the mains charger even if the battery will not charge. Battery is confirmed dead but lamp will not work on mains nor on 12v car lead. Don't want to buy new battery if the lamp unit iteself is faulty.


Brentonb, In the event that you don't get a direct answer (which is likely, since this is a pretty obscure question) I suggest you troubleshoot it this way. Remove the bad battery. Use the charging device that came with the lantern and wire it temporarily to the device in place of the battery. This will supply the correct voltage, but takes the possibly shorted battery out of the circuit. If you are certain you have the polarity correct and you know that the charger works, then you have your answer. good luck.

What is the correct globe for the Eveready Model AV425 7 Watt U Tube lantern?


Hi, Check and clean the contacts from the batteries to the lamp. There maybe corrosion in there. Also the switch maybe bad. Clean and retry. Use a bit of emery paper to clean contacts. good luck.

Energizer WeatherReady lantern came with batteries; worked once. Can't unscrew the top to change batteries. Possible battery corrosion? Is there a workaround fix?


Mix water and baking soda together until baking soda is dissolved. Take a small baking pan or a bowel with a flat bottom and place the lantern in a vertical position, bottom down and slowly pour in the baking soda solution so the solution is 1/4" above the battery lid so the solution can soak into the threads of the lid. Let sit overnight. Next morning, slowly lift the lantern out of the solution without tipping it keeping it vertical, and slowly unscrew the lid over the sink. Keep in mind there will be solution inside the lantern when you first open it, so be careful not to tip it until you dry out the inside.
