You need to twist the black bulb end off in the direction of the arrow labeled open. The best way I found was to place the yellow end between my legs to hold it in place.

The black globe end is threaded, so firmly (but gently) twist in the direction of the arrow indicator marked 'OPEN' on its side, then (depending on the model of torch) carefully unhook the battery/switch connector (a removable black plastic part which sits between the globe and the battery) from the yellow compartment - insert any 6-volt battery (Duracell is recommended for frequent use in lanterns and large flashlights and generally lasts longer than regular batteries but you can use any 6-volt battery) - put the battery into the body with the spring terminals facing the open front end to allow connection to the strip on the back of the switch connector. Once the battery is seated, re-fit the battery/switch connector - with the button facing toward the top so it mates with the button, then simply screw the front globe face back on. If you have done everything correctly, and assuming the battery is fresh and the globe is OK, the torch should work. It is a lot easier to do in practice than explain in print.

    I'm glad that I haven't got arthritis, I can't remember them being so hard to turn years ago!

    I must admit, the threaded globe end is a bit tight to remove first time around when it's new on these, so you can always place the body of the torch between your knees to make twisting the front end off easier prior to replacing/installing the battery.

How to change batteries in A Eveready FAB4DCM


had a quick look online and found this is a museum piece.
http://www.flashlightmuseum.com/Eveready-Flashlight-FAB4DCM-Red-Black-Sea-Beam-Waterproof-Lantern-6V-2003
Called a Dolphin torch, I remember these from the '80s and had to replace the batteries too often to ever want to do it again.
The front unlocks by rotating 1/4 turn. The batteries are a 6V sealed lead acid cell and now cost more than a new modern torch with a Li-ion cell. You will need a 6V charger if the battery can be recharged and unlikely if its old and discharged for long time.

I have bought a new 6volt battery for my dolphin but can't work out how to replace it.


The bezel (the circular portion on the front of the flashlight that holds the bulb and lens) will unscrew. The old battery should slide right out.

Hope this helps.

What type of battery does it use?


The XG-A uses two 1.5v alkaline-manganese (Eveready A-76 or equivalent) or 1.55v silver-oxide (Eveready EPX-76/S-76 or equivalent) batteries.

Do not use 1.35v mercury batteries (Eveready EPX-675 or equivalent), which have a similar shape.
