SOURCE: how to change the batteries on the TUF4D1

The front outer rubber cover is removeable. Once you take it off with your fingers, the front unscrews revealing a two piece battery case. Squeeze the top flanges together and lift out, then the battery case shown in the box just lifts out.

I need to change the battery on a Highgear LED Fuse Micro lantern model #10084HG

It's easy once you figure it out. Unscrew the top and then push down on the exposed screw threads with your thumb. The internal "guts" slide out the bottom.

Rayovac 360 sportsman lantern wont work

Since batteries and bulbs are new/ok, check for a bad connection. In older version using 4 lantern batteries, open the battery compartment by unscrewing the knob on top of lantern. The lantern bottom comes off once unscrewed (of course you did this to change batteries). There is a "C" clip on the lantern center shaft; remove this by prying with screwdriver or with pliers. Carefully raise the battery contact plate and check slip-on wire connections. Clean as needed (Scotch-Brite works well) and reconnect. Squirt some contact cleaner in exposed switches, work switches back and forth. Inspect circuit board for obvious corrosion or damaged parts (this damage may "total" the lantern). Re-install plate aligning grooves with ribs. Install batteries and test.

How do you install 6V battery into Dorcy luminator

I was just having the same problem - I didn't realize that I had to take the black caps off the two springs at one end of the battery! Once I pulled those off, and put the battery in with the springs facing up, I was able to screw the top of the flashlight back on, and it worked. I hope this helps.

Purchased the Disney Tangled Glimmer and Glow Lantern. Trying to replace the 3 AAA batteries that it came with - but doesn't work w/ others (tried 2 different brands of batteries - both new) won't...

I had the same problem initially with this toy. I tried to replace the factory batteries with regular AAA alkaline batteries with no luck. I went to a specialty battery shop to try to find the carbon zinc replacement batteries also with no luck. When I got home I remembered that I had a basket full of rechargeable batteries of varying sizes so I thought that I would sift through them to see what I had. I found three of the Rayovac 15 minute rechargeable NiMH 2000 m A h AAA batteries and I charged them up just to see if they would work in the toy- THEY DID!!! I would imagine that any battery like this would work whether it was rechargeable or not- and they're probably a little bit cheaper too. I hope you have good luck making your lanterns sing and glow again too!

I can't figure how to change the battery on this hardcase lantern took off the rubber surrounding the lantern face, but nothing else seems to come off without unscrewing, But seems like those sre rivits...

I've owned this flashlight for years. In the comment above, ignore the instruction to remove the rubber casing around the lamp area. Simply grasp the whole front of the lamp piece (including the rubber cover), and twist in a counter-clockwise direction to remove. Then squeeze together the two black tabs and pull the battery compartment out to replace the batteries.
