SOURCE: How do you change the batteries on a Coleman

All The info I can find nothing tells us how to change the batteries. Is this a rechargable light, if so the batteries are not available for replacement. If not then the top has to screw off, or the bottom plate must screw off, there isn't any other way. What I have read is that these on this light are very hard to remove, at least that is what folks are complaining about. this light has also been discontinued and no longer availabe. if your afraid of breaking the light then I would contact Coleman for their advice since there seems to be none to be found on any bulletins they have put out.

I got it off. All you need is pliers. You take pliers and twist the bottom of torch with them. It'll come off in a minute or two, just keep twisting!

I have a coleman companion flashlight/lantern and need to disassemble it for battery replacement. i can`t fiqure out how.

Really? Put the flashlight down and slowly step away from it and if that doesn't work threaten it with a hammer?
Seriously did you read the package directions? The pointy end with the gray ring is the end most likely screws off to put the AA batteries in.

How do you open a Coleman flashlight

You need to specify the model of the flashlight. However, for most of them you simply unscrew the bulb head or the battery end cap, empty the old batteries and insert the new ones with the positive end of the batteries always pointing toward the bulb end and the negative end of the batteries toward the spring in the end cap.. Be sure to discard the batteries properly. Contact your local trash disposal company to determine where and how to dispose of them.

How do I remove the battery?

This is not intended to be a user replaceable battery, although I have found a replacement battery 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.

Batteries are stuck in the flashlight. How do I get them out without distroying it?

If they are stuck, they have probably leaked and the flashlight is probably corroded already. But here are two suggestions. Get a heavy piece of string and tie it securely around the flashlight at the lens end. Tape it on with duct tape for good measure. When hung by the string the lens end of the flashlight should point up and the open end should point down. Stand in a place with lots of space and no windows or pets or people around. Swing the string over your head to generate some g's. The batteries may come flying out. Another suggestion is to drill a hole in the battery, put a long screw in it and pull it out. Wear safety goggles. If the second battery is also stuck you will need a long drill and a longer screw. Good luck.
