Useful information about how do I change the battery in my Coast hp14 flashlight
Your flashlight should never get warm to the touch and it should never get too hot to hold. It is best to not leave the battery inside of your flashlight for weeks or months at a time. If you are worried that you will forget to turn off the flashlight, you can always turn it into a ‘night light’ or a ‘trinket’.
Night lights are extremely easy to make; you just need a simple on/off switch and a bulb to screw into the flashlight’s end. That way, you can leave it plugged in for months at a time. If you aren’t worried about forgetting to turn off your flashlight and you’re not worried about it getting too hot while in use, then there’s no problem leaving it plugged in for long periods of time.
Your light source is the most important part of your flashlight. If you don’t plan on using it for a long period of time, take out the battery and keep it in a dry place so that it doesn’t leak and cause damage to your flashlight. If the battery leaks and damages the electronic board inside of the flashlight, you may need to replace that board.
This can be difficult and is best left to experienced technicians at a store like RadioShack that could possibly find a way to save your flashlight if the board isn’t completely destroyed by battery acid. Make sure you get a light bulb that is specifically made for flashlights. Normal light bulbs burn out quickly and can give off an incredibly hot light, which will cause your flashlight’s plastic to melt.
It’s best to not mess around with the inside of the flashlight too much. You should only open up the flashlight if it gets wet or if something is broken. If none of the previous steps in this guide work, you will need to open up your flashlight again.
Your batteries will lose strength as time goes on and you will need to replace them. Do so by removing the old battery and replacing it with a new one. If you are using non-rechargeable batteries, you will need to purchase more every few months.
Rechargeable batteries, however, can be recharged whenever they lose their charge. Be sure to place all of the screws back into their original positions before trying to turn the flashlight on. If you put the screws in the wrong place, your flashlight will not work properly and could possibly cause damage.
Hope this guide has been helpful and, most importantly, will be able to help you in the future! If you ever need additional assistance, please contact your local Pokémon professor (every region has one!) and they will be more than happy to help!
You have been granted with the ability to edit this guide. Please don’t abuse this feature; it’s only meant to fix minor spelling/grammar mistakes or adding additional information if necessary. 🙂 If you don’t know exactly where each screw goes, it’s best to place them in an easily noticeable area (Such as the ones on the battery cover or the base of the flashlight) so you don’t mess up and ruin your flashlight.
