Rechargeable Camping Lantern

Hi,

I have a 12v rechargeable camping lantern which now switches off after a few minutes operation. On letting it stand the unit works again after a few minutes only to cut out again, later on.

The lantern works off a rechargeable gel battery and powers a "four-finger" shaped flourescent globe. It has three LEDs to indicate battery level and charging status. Inside the unit is a PC board approximately 13cm x 6cm of electronic components. It's been working fine for the last 18 months.

I've ruled out the battery, (replaced and checked charge holding capacity) as well as the globe. A replacement globe also keep switching off.

Any ideas on what to look for please.

Thank you,

Paul

We just recently installed a harbor breeze ceiling fan w/light and remote. During a storm the lights just quit working. What can we do?


Power outages cause ceiling fans to suffer memory loss. The basic "cure" is to disconnect fan power at the source and, while waiting a few minutes, remove the remote battery and press all buttons to verify that none are stuck. Reinstall the battery and test operation. Other factors may affect restored operation such as using wall switches and pulling the chains. The simple brain in the fan canopy can't remember switch and/or pull chain settings at the instant of power loss.

Remove light governor


I installed my Hunter Ceiling Fan a little over a year ago. A few nights ago my wife told me the lights in the ceiling fan blinked a few times when she turned it on. Over the next few day the problem got much worse. When I turned on the light switch, the lights would not turn on. After a few minutes the lights would begin to flash, like a strobe light. This flashing would last for about a minute.
This morning I removed the light kit. I noticed the watt regulator, part 98480-02. I connected the wires directly that were wired through the regulator. So far, the light now works fine!

We have a 12 by 12 rabbit shed in the back yard. Every night she goes out to feed and water them in the dark with a flashlight. I want to hook up a car battery up to a compact flourescent bulb -- or two....


There are plenty of 12V fluorescent and halogen light units sold for garage and boating use. Just wire one of these to your battery.

Alternatively you can get a camping inverter and use household fluorescent fittings, as these will give a somewhat better light.

Hi,
The motor has gone bad... the best thing to do is to take it back and get another one... often if a motor is bad it will fail very quickly like that...

Blades stopped on my 02 cool fan.


I love the 02 Cool rechargeable/battery operated fans and have them running in my home and office daily. However, they do have a limited lifespan. I get about 6-9 months of daily use before the fan motor goes dead and the blades stop turning. However, I'll keep buying them. I live in an area where we frequently lose power and the rechargeable/battery operated feature pays off when it does so on a hot day.
