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

How do D batteries install into a Rayovac camping lantern?


If there is no access panel on the bottom for the batteries then the base itself must unscrew to give you access. I'm sure that will work for you.

Swissgear rechargable lantern won't light up, even though the green led light indicates it is fully charged


There are several different models of the Swiss Gear rechargeable lantern. On most though, you can remove the top portion of the lantern and check the lighting element inside. In most cases the elements can be removed and replaced. I have a dual filament lantern and from experience I know that every so often you may have to go buy a replacement light piece. If the lantern has been bumped or even just strapped to the outside of the pack while walking, it's possible for those elements to become loose and need repositioning or replacement so do check that. I'm sure that it should be unlikely your charger is malfunctioning unless you left it plugged in for some very extended period of time, in which case I would say the light would be more likely to burn out. But definitely try that and if that doesn't work the battery pack on the lantern itself may have an issue in which case you can always get a replacement.

Should I use an electrical or propane lantern for camping?


I suggest propane or gas because they are cheap to operate and you are given the option of dimming, which is something you can't do with most electric lanterns.

I have a Vector VEC1378 rechargeable lantern - does this lantern also take a battery or must it be electrically charged only? If so, how do you open the battery case. Thank you.


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
