Coleman Retro Rechargeable Family Style Lantern

We bought the Model 2000000850, turned on the lantern to run out the battery and then gave it a full charge as per instructions on 110. We then used the lantern two weekends for about 5 hours and the battery died. We then recharged again on the 110 and went to use but the lamp came on and only lasted about 10 minutes and then kicked off. We tried recharging it again on the 110 and when we went to use it, the light came on and instantly shut off. Help- we bought this for the Coleman name and can't believe the battery or lamp is supposed to do this. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

SOURCE: Hi With the rechargeable lanterns

You connect the charger to the lamp and plug the charger into an AC outlet. Having the lamp on will increase charge time. The charger does not appear to accept feedback from the battery so it depends on you to disconnect it when charge is complete.

SOURCE: i want to know how i light and use my Coleman

fill the tank about 2/3 full. put the cap on tight, pump the air pump about 50 to 75 times to pressurize the fuel tank, you may have to turn the pump knob in a few turns to get a good pressure feel when you are pumping, then push the pump down all the way and turn the knob in until it gets snug. then you turn the gas knob on until you hear a hissing noise. turn it off and stick a large lit match in thru one of the holes in the steel plate below the lens and hold it close to one of the mantles then turn the gas on again and it should light up. let it run for a minute or so until the mantles light up brightly and then turn it on the rest of the way. I've done this hundreds of times. hope this helps and good luck. Jeepfxr

SOURCE: how to light coleman lantern

Kerosene lanterns require a little more than just lighting the mantles. Go to Coleman's website and find the directions (for free) for KEROSENE lanterns. The generator on the lantern needs to be preheated with alcohol before it will actually light. Make sure lantern is a Kerosene lantern and not a white gas (Coleman fuel) type, there is a difference even though they look similar.

SOURCE: I have a Vector VEC1378

I have the same and bought a $20 6v lead acid replacement from the Batteries Store. There are 4 small screws hidden under the foam rubber ring pad on the bottom. Very easy to open and swap out the battery. That said if you want to sell me your old lantern as is, I would enjoy having a second one for camping. Thanks and good luck. I can be reached at rudock1 at yahoo dot com. -Billy

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...


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.
