6V Economy Floating Lantern
No instructions, if not for the internet it would be in the trash
I bought this at a dollar store because we were expecting storms. I got home and spent at least 45 minutes trying to screw the cap on.. I nearly broke it. I wanted to take it back to the store, but the packaging is basically a sticker you have to rip off. If it wasn't for the internet, I probably would never have figured it out. How could anyone who has never used this type of flashlight know to remove the the little black cap that looks like a sewing thimble from the battery??!! I'm lucky it works now. Rayovac, please spend the extra pennies to include instructions. That's the only reason I gave a poor rating.

Good for the money
EXCEPT! I agree - NO INSTRUCTIONS to tell a dummy like me (83 yrs old) to take to cap off the battery.
Thank goodness for the internet where I could look it up on this web site!

REMOVE BLACK CAP on middle battery spring!
The instructions (NONE), could have saved many folks a lot of time by telling you to remove the black cap on 6 volt battery before trying to screw the top on.... UGH! Other than that, I like it.

perfect for the price
I bought 4. One for each car. Mine the wifes and the kids. For the price and with a battery there is no better deal. Just leave it in the trunk.

Instructions are lacking.
I attempted to load in battery and shut it. I didn't realize that I didn't take the cap off that's protecting the spring in the center. After that it was a breeze! I felt stupid but thanks to a previous review I was able to work it out!

Terrible! No instructions!!!
I really hoped that this would work great, because we have a storm going on and thought this would work great. NOPE! There are NO instructions, and it took me forever to figure out how to install the battery. When I finally did get it in, and closed it doesn't work!! What a waste of money! Very disappointed..
