Question about Coleman Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
Hey guys I have a Coleman model 5348-700 rechargeable lantern. I have replaced my tube bulbs and it still doesn't work. I am now sure its the battery, even though when I plug it in the red light works. But when I opened the bottom to get the battery out to go to get a new one the battery won't come out at all. it seams to be glued. How do I remove the battery? Should I take it to a camping store maybe?
This is not intended to be a user replaceable battery, although I have found a replacement battery on-line.so that means that SOME people have replaced them. the cost is $9 +s&h. I don't think most camping outfitters would be able to help you with it, But it would be worth a try.
My suggestion would be (if you have one in your area) take it to a Batteries Plus store. They are quite good at replacing batteries that are NOT meant for user replacement.
Best of luck to you.

Check the battery with a volt meter to make sure you have the correct voltage. If not, replace battery. If correct voltage, bypass switch to determine if it is good or not. If not, replace. There really isn't much to go wrong on the lanterns except the bulb or battery.
