Nope it's the great big flat battery you used to get in bike lights. I'll take a look tomorrow and give you the code. I got mine and ever ready from a local electrical shop but you can buy them on ebay. PM me If I forget as very busy.

Hi Ian.

This is the battery.

There is no cover. The clips on the bottom swivel to hold the battery in place Smile

That's a shame mate!!!! Should be easy to sort bulb though.. I'll assume that the light housing unscrews somehow for easy access to replace bulb? While we are on subject of these lights could I ask someone to give me a couple of measurements please? The diameter and depth of light head.. Area of square base and overall height? Sorry to hijack mate.. Smile
