I don't like to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like there are no longer replacement batteries available for that lantern. Please see this link for repair parts from coleman. (also possibly here.) There is a customer service number listed at the bottom of that first page that will put you in touch with a Coleman representative, who may be able to suggest an alternative choice for your lantern. Failing that, the only solution I can recommend would be to take the lantern to one of the aftermarket battery suppliers (such as Batterys Plus, etc.) and see if they can provide you with a non OEM version of the battery you need for your lantern to take a charge.
Good luck. I hope you're able to find something.]

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I received a 21 LED lantern for Christmas and got the 3 "D" batteries and the thing glows at what should be shut off point. They only way to shut it off is to remove the bottom plate. Is this normal


Turn clockwise and counter clockwise the lantern.(The upper side leds)
If not check the pin of switch that makes the contact to the upside.

How to fix the switch on eveready lantern flashlight


The switch in the lantern is a press fit switch so you will destroy it when you remove it. Remove the lense and retainer ring. Remove the battery. With a pair of pliers, preferably channel lock water pump pliers crush the switch into small piece and discard. Trail Tech makes the exact water resistant switch model 040-ls-b and you can get it at Amazon or on eBay . The switch runs around $6.25 + $4.00 shipping

My mom purchased this Jeep lantern and does not have the manual that came with it. I don't know how to get the light to stay on. She uses this to get across the street to get her mail. She is an 82 ye


Hi, I'm having a similar issue with my jeep lantern as well. It's actually a really nice lantern, however, when I plug it in with the power cord, it seems like it is A LOT brighter than when it's just running on batteries alone. When using the turn button, it does get brighter and dimmer, just not to the extent I would like it to be as I use the lantern at night as well to do things such as checking the mail and going to my vehicle. I feel much safer with the light at night, but obviously can't keep it plugged in when walking around my property. It just is not as bright running on just the batteries. I'm not sure if there is a mechanical error with the product, but I've never noticed the difference between the brightness until recently. I changed the batteries and it just didn't make a difference. Just wanting to get some advice to see what I could do to try and make the light brighter. Maybe it has to do with the new batteries I bought, however, they are GREAT batteries I purchased and I don't think that is the issue. Some suggestions would be helpful. :)

I have a coleman propane lantern model 5417 that will not light. Does seem to be getting the propane. Appreciate any help or ideas. Thanks, Joe


Clean the hole in the tip of the generator, or turn the wire handle 360 deg. 2 or three times, and try to light the lantern with the wire handle in the down position.
I hope I was some help? Cheers David dwfarrell@gruvy.com

How to light coleman lantern


Kerosene lanterns require a little more than just lighting the mantles. Go to Coleman's website and find the directions (for free) for KEROSENE lanterns. The generator on the lantern needs to be preheated with alcohol before it will actually light. Make sure lantern is a Kerosene lantern and not a white gas (Coleman fuel) type, there is a difference even though they look similar.
