In a 24x24 room with white walls it lights the room nicely but to read by it you need to have it within 8 ft of you. We loved it so much we have bought three of them so far.

Twist the battery cover off at the base. I just hold the lantern upside down and twist the square rubberized battery cover counter clockwise. It should pop off with a half turn. Put the batteries in position. Then line up the two red arrows when re-positioning the cover.

I use this lantern with NiMH batteries and it works fine. Specifically, I use the Energizer AA Rechargeable 2200 mAh batteries or the Sanyo Eneloop AA 2000 mAh (I have multiple sets of rechargable batteries which I use for all sorts of things). I also use the AA to D adapters so the batteries will fit. The Sanyos last a little longer; probably because they are better batteries. Obviously, the AA rechargeables don't last as long as D batteries. I also haven't timed how long the lantern lasts with AA rechargables, but my best guess is about 10-15 hours. I hope this helps.

The bottom of the lantern twists off with a quarter turn. Install 3 D cells. It can be quite frustrating getting the bottom back on the lantern so take your time. Once you have the batteries in, the lantern is fantastic. Great light, rugged construction. It is a shame that they don't put instructions for the battery installation or any thing else for that matter.

If the packaging the lantern came in was the old style all plastic clam shell then the specs listed on it are old as well and do not reflect the updated numbers of the current ANSI standard. The new packaging is simply the lantern with a green paper wrapped around the diffuser that says 240 lumens 90 hour runtime (low mode). This comparison light output review of the Rayovac SE3DLN lantern side by side with a number of others: http://www.getpreparedstuff.com/led-lantern-review (http://goo.gl/wpNQ6) The light output is the same for the lantern in the old packaging or in the new, nothing hardware wise has changed. The light output is good no matter what the numbers say it holds it's own very well against every other lantern tested and is the brightest at lighting up the room.

Real easy press once quickly to get powered on and that is high. Press again quickly and you get a lower setting. Press and hold and you get flashing emergency beacon

I'm guessing the leaking battery acid either corroded a terminal or it's covered with rust to the point it wont conduct electricity. You can try cleaning and inspecting the connections if you like. I wouldn't bother..just get a new one. Make sure you wear gloves. You don't want to get battery acid on your skin.
