are the batteries rechargeable?
This lantern uses 4 D Batteries. We recommend alkaline for the best performance.
how do you get the batteries out geeeeeeze
The battery compartment is on the bottom. Unscrew the black base of the lantern. When replacing the batteries, remember the negative or flat side of the battery goes into the compartments with the springs at the bottom. Screw the base back on tightly when batteries are installed.
warning says might explode. Cannot read text on label. Please explain. Thanks
The warning for exploding refers to using mixed battery chemistries or mixing standard batteries with rechargeables.
