The Energizer Rechargeable Flashlight is a medium-sized plastic flashlight with an incandescent light bulb at the bottom of a somewhat egg-shaped, mirror-smooth reflector.

To charge, it simply plugs into any standard household (United States anyway) outlet furnishing 110 to 130 volts AC, 60Hz, and features an internal rechargeable battery comprised of two unknown size cells, NiMH in chemistry.


As with any rechargeable product, you'll want to charge it before using it for the first time (see directly below).

Slide the slide switch on the top of the barrel forward (toward the front of the unit) to turn it on.

Slide the switch back (toward the rear of the unit) to turn it off.

Charge it for 24 hours before its first use. This is how you do it:

On the underside of the flashlight at its base, there is a set of flip-out charging prongs. Pull the edge of that grey thing backwards (toward the flashlight's tail end), the AC prongs should now come out, and a yellowsh-amber LED in the bezel in front of the switch will also come on.

Plug the flashlight into any standard 2- or 3-slot volts AC receptacle. A red light behind the switch should now come on. No specific charge time is given.

The instructions printed on the back of the package indicate the product can be left plugged in indefinitely without harm.

Since this is an incandescent product, eventually it will need to be relamped.

Turn the flashlight over, and look at the transparent bezel for a slot. Place the blade of a standard screwdriver or a butterknife in this slot, and twist until the bezel pops up. Lift the transparent bezel away; jiggle it a bit if necessary.

The transparent bezel and reflector should come off in one piece; set it aside.

In the center of the flashlight as it's facing up is the bulb. Remove it by pulling it straight up, gently place it on the floor, and STOMP ON IT!!!
Yeah yeah yeah stomp on it!!! Break it break it break it!!! I guess I've seen too many episodes of Beavis and Butt-Head, hahaha!!!

Insert a new KPR2 bulb in the socket.
Place the bezel & reflector back over the front of the flashlight, orienting the bezel so the slot on one edge faces the tab on the underside of the flashlight for it, then press it until it snaps into place.

This product is made primarily of plastic, so "The Smack Test" would be inappropriate.

The product is also not too water-resistant; the instructional material states "The light is not watertight. Do not immerse it in water or other liquid."
So I guess that means "The Toilet Test" would not be appropriate either.

The open-circuit voltage measures 2.711 volts; center (nipple) contact is negative (-), outer contact is positive (+). So that pretty much precludes the use of most LED retrofit bulbs in it; however the EverLED bulb with the diamond logo (nipple=negative, outer can=positive) should function in this flashlight.

The flashlight's very narrow beam accounts a great deal for this high reading.
